3 Reasons A Fly-In Experience is the Ideal Introduction to the Arctic

February 22, 2019

Can you imagine a more exciting way to arrive in the Arctic then by flying over the mountains and glaciers? What could be better than seeing this breathtaking scenery with a birds-eye-view, before you walk among it?

Are you wondering about travelling to the Arctic? You may be surprised to find out how easy it is to get to Baffin Island and beyond.

Fly-In Experience to the Arctic

Here are three reasons why the fly-in experience is an ideal way to arrive at your destination in the Arctic.

The Stunning Views

There truly is something incredible about seeing this expansive landscape from the sky above. There is a majesty to the size and scale of the Arctic. Icebergs that appear like mountains, glaciers that snake deep into a mountain valley. And an eternal sky that seems to transcend the horizon itself.

Stunning Arctic Views

The Arctic is one of the last true wildernesses on earth and few people have experienced this remarkable destination.  While visitors look forward to the wildlife encounters but what you might not expect is the awe of flying over this tremendous landscape. You may come back daydreaming of the snowy mountain tops in a perpetual winter or the glistening ice of the frozen ocean, with cracks and snowmelt ponds that reflect the long spring days of sunlight.

While other vacations might offer the option to hire a fly-over tour separately, at Arctic Kingdom this is how you are introduced to this magnificent vista. It’ll take your breath away — even before you begin your safari.

Start Your Adventure Sooner

Get to the floe edge quicker. Our fly-in experience is about more than the views, it allows guest to arrive in camp on day one.

Rather than riding behind a snowmobile for hours to get to camp, our fly-in experience cuts down on unnecessary travel time.

We want to maximize your safari experience and that means more time for wildlife tours. By flying directly in and out of camp you’ll cut down on exhausting travel time and have more energy for the adventures that await.

Go To Remote Areas Few Have Ever Traveled To 

You’ll be surprised how easy it is to travel to the Arctic. With daily commercial flights from Ottawa’s international airport to Iqaluit and then connections to other Arctic communities, it really is more accessible than you might imagine.

However, there are remote locations in the Arctic that truly offer more — more adventures, more opportunities for wildlife encounters, more incredible landscapes — but only if you can get to these places.

Arctic Kingdom - exclusive access to like Navy Board Inlet

Arctic Kingdom organizes chartered flights to these remote locations and some that we have exclusive access to like Navy Board Inlet. This floe edge safari brings you to a destination rarely travelled to by others and is known to be bustling with wildlife activity.


And, if you can dream it then Arctic Kingdom can deliver. We offer private journeys to many different locations across Baffin Island we know are exciting but also let you decide where to go. It’s your trip and we’re here to offer our expertise and knowledge.
