Camping Out in Unchartered Canada

By Samantha Coles

Located between Greenland and mainland Canada, Baffin Island is a wild, dramatic expanse of land that despite being the fifth-largest island in the world, has a population of only 11,000. In winter, fluffy snow blankets the jagged mountains and the lakes freeze over; it’s a wonderland for off-the-beaten-track skiers. Cookson Adventures has partnered with Weber Arctic, a family-led exploration company, to create a six-day trip: Venture out into the wild via helicopter and snowcat to carve through untouched powder.

Unchartered slopes

You can even name a ski line after yourself on these unchartered slopes, should you wish to leave your mark. Face some of the world’s highest vertical cliffs and longest couloirs. Accommodations are equally out-of-the-ordinary — a collection of Pacific dome tents that are cozy and snug inside but resemble spaceships from the outside. Experience the rich culture of the native Inuit people: Clyde River maintains some of the oldest traditions of any Inuit community. The residents live in harmony with nature (including the polar bears that roam through local fjords).
