The only hotel in the world on a frozen sea
Trip by snowmobile through the legendary Northwest Passage in Canada to watch and photograph polar bears with Inuit guides. Using as a base a hotel built specifically for this trip on the frozen sea, we will travel by snowmobile in the key point of the mythical Northwest Passage. Guided by experienced Inuit, some of whom were born in igloos, we will cross the frozen Barrow and Lancaster straits. A frozen ice sea area where pressure ridges and plains of ice mix.
Departing from Resolute, base of many of the sports expeditions to the Geographic North Pole, our goal is to reach a polynia, an area of sea that never freezes, located near Devon Island. Esta polynia es un lugar rico en fauna donde es habitual encontrar focas y su depredador natural el oso polar, una maravilla de adaptación al clima y terreno ártico. This polynia is rich in wildlife where it is common to find seals and their natural predator, the polar bear, a marvel of adaptation to the Arctic climate and terrain.

On our route we will stop at Beechy Island, an archaeological site where the remains of ill-fated expedition of Sir John Franklin, was the source of much of the American High Arctic exploration.

After watching and photographing polar bears and other wildlife we will visit The Canadian Military Arctic Survival School, where the Canadian Air Force learns polar survival techniques taught by our Inuit guides. Allí mismo construiremos iglús con nuestros maestros esquimales. Right there with our Inuit teachers we will build igloos. Those ones who want will be able to sleep in this snow shelter warmed by a traditional seal oil lamp.

To end our expedition we will return to Resolute in the most versatile aircraft in aviation, a ski-equipped Twin Otter. During the flight from the air we will see the spectacular frozen sceneries of one of the most remote and inaccessible places of the planet.
