On top of the world: Black Feather guided trips
If independent backcountry hiking is not for you, Parks Canada has partnered with Black Feather: The Wilderness Adventure Company to provide two guided experiences in Quttinirpaaq National park. All the elements of the Parks Canada On top of the world charter trip are included, in addition to Black Feather offerings. Want a guided multi-day backcountry adventure? Choose the Ad Astra Trek. Prefer taking photos on shorter hikes? The Ellesmere Basecamp is for you.
Ad Astra Trek
Circumnavigate the Ad Astra icecap in one of Ellesmere Island’s spectacular hiking areas. Travel with experienced Black Feather wilderness guides and explore the wilderness of Quttinirpaaq National Park. This guided trip requires a minimum of four participants to run and participants must be at least 16 years old.
Ellesmere Basecamp & Photography
Grab your camera and head into a stunning landscape to photograph mountainous and glacial vistas. Watch grazing muskoxen and see if you can spot Arctic wolves, Arctic foxes, and the different bird species that call Quttinirpaaq National Park home. Tanquary Fiord will be your High Arctic basecamp as you go on day trips in search of the perfect photo! This guided experience requires a minimum of four participants to run and participants must be at least 16 years old.
