Welcome onboard our eight days trip up along the north-west territories of Spitsbergen; an area rich on both historical sites and wildlife. Focusing on this one area, although relatively ... morelarge, allows us more time at the different places where we anchor, as well as time ashore.
We will spend time on the remote areas up north such as the north-western islands, the Bockfjord, and the Liefdefjord.
This is a spectacular Arctic adventure, that will show you the amazing Svalbard nature, plenty of wildlife - and you'll learn how to sail during the trip!
12th August – Meeting onboard and sail out the Icefjord We meet onboard the boat in the harbour of Longyearbyen, and start to get to know the other guests, the boat and the equipment. ... moreTogether we stow all our gear and the food, and then we go through a safety drill and practice handling the boat and sails. After making sure we are all set to go we sail straight over the fjord from Longyearbyen to Tempelet (The Temple) with it’s impressive shapes in sand and stone. Then we head out of the Icefjord and north. During the night we will sail on the inside of Prins Karls Forland and through the shallow passage of the Forlands-reef.

13th August - Krossfjorden and the surrounding sites
During the day we will reach Krossfjorden (Cross-fjord) and later on the Lilliehöökfjord. Here we will visit the Lilliehöök-glacier with its 8 kilometer long glacier edge. There is need to rush in these surrondings! Later in the day we will sail back out the fjord and head further north towards the Magdalena-fjord.

14th August – The Magdalena-fjord and the north western islands
Coming up on the north western side the Magdalena fjord we will find today’s first point of interest. The beautiful fjord with ice in the water and high peaks around is named after the guardian angel of early Basque whalers; Maria Magdalena. The fjord was an important base for whaling already from the 16th century. Many also died here, and there are a number of burial sites in the area. As we sail further north we reach more protected waters amongst the north-western Islands, the Smeerenberg-fjord. We will visit the Danish-island and the Amsterdam-island with history from the 16th century hunting for whales in this area. At the peak in the 1630s there were about 250 boats hunting about 750 whales per summer. Thus the whale population sank quickly and so did the number of whalers.
Then 250 years later the Danish island became relevant once again as a base for several polar expeditions in the 18th and 19th century. Virgohavna on the north side was the base for the André expedition of 1896-97 and later the Wellman-expedition of 1906, 07, and 09.
Opposite from Virgohamna we may visit the Smeerenberg-point; the main whaling-station of the Dutch during the peak years of 1617-42. The sites on Danish Island and Amsterdam Island are very popular and also protected, hence the permit to go ashore here is shared with other vessels.

15th August - 17th August – Fjord-sailing into the longer fjords on the north side
The next days we sail into the longer fjords with entrance from north; the Raudfjord, the Liefdefjord and the Bock-fjord. These fjords are home to many reindeers and seels, and polar bears are regularly seen. The glaciers are fascinating, and in the Bock-fjord we will find three springs with water heated by thermal activity, allowing us to indulge in a warm bath!

18th – 20th August – Sailing back south
Early on the 18th we will start our way back towards Longyearbyen. If we get good weather it will give us time to visit more places on the way, such as New Ålesund and Barentsburg.

We will be in Longyearbyen late on the 19th and conclude the trip with a good lunch together in the city the day after. Instead of rushing directly to the airport we recommend that you spend an extra night or day in Longyearbyen to let the experiences of the last ten days sink, and maybe explore some of the things Longyearbyen has to offer.

These Algonquin Park canoe trips are perfect for people on a tight schedule or a tight budget, but who still want an introduction into wilderness camping. We provide all food, permits, ... morea knowledgeable guide, and all equipment (except personal items like sleeping bags, flashlights – a packing check list is provided). We can even provide transportation from Toronto as an option.
Day 1 – Arrive in Algonquin Park Pickup at Finch Subway Station in Toronto (optional – you can drive yourself to Algonquin Park). We meet at 1pm at the Permit Office at Rock Lake in ... moreAlgonquin Park. Before we start your guide will instruct everyone on the necessary skills and techniques for canoeing. With your “Expedition weight” kevlar canoes we will paddle into one of the interior lakes of Algonquin Park (Pen Lake). While kevlar canoes are much more fragile than other canoes, requiring you to be careful around rocks, you will appreciate their relative lightness on portages and their speed in the water. This differentiates Call Of The Wild from other canoe tripping companies. Our canoes are much more expensive and fragile, but much lighter and faster than the more durable whitewater canoes they use. 

At the end of this three day canoe trip you won’t be an expert but you will know how to pack and steer a canoe. After a three hour paddle (including a 300m portage) you will arrive at your wilderness camp. Since this is a true interior wilderness camp you will have to bring everything with you in the canoes, including the tents.

Once you establish camp, with the help of your experienced guide, you are free to explore the lake we are on. There are several large rapids that were once used as log chutes that are quite interesting. Also, in this area it is quite common to see moose grazing by the edge of the lake – we have seen over a half dozen moose in a two day period here! 

Dinner will consist of fresh food, prepared on site, and enjoyed by the side of a blazing campfire! Afterwards, you can sit and watch the Milky Way rise slowly above your heads. The sky is so clear in Algonquin Park that you can even count satellites passing by. And if you’re really lucky you may even hear wolves howling in the distance. This is real Canadian camping!

Day 2 – Exploring Algonquin by Canoe

Today is a day of exploration. You can spend it exploring the lake you are on, by canoe, looking for moose, or perhaps do another portage and canoe up a meandering river. If you decide to try another lake one option is to do a short portage past an old dam used for logging, and then canoe the slow moving waters of the South Madawaska River. Since you will have to get out of our canoes to pull them over several beaver dams be sure to bring shoes or sandals for the water! Depending on where you establish your base camp, another option would be to canoe half way down the lake and then do a couple of portages, ending with a 1.7 km hike to Welcome Lake. This is one of the prettiest lakes in Algonquin Park, with a nice sandy beach. Perfect for picnic destination on a sunny day.

Day 3 – Canoeing Home

After an early morning breakfast you pack up camp, load the canoes, and start the paddle home. The early start is a great opportunity to see moose or deer (if you are lucky) coming to the lake shore to drink. You will be backtracking your route through two lakes and one portage, but everything looks different in the opposite direction!

Depending on weather and wave conditions you will stop at a cliff face where we will show you some ancient pictographs painted by the Natives centuries ago. 

You will get back to our starting point on Rock Lake at about 11 am. If you chose the optional transportation then you will be dropped off at Finch subway station in Toronto at about 4 pm.

Later head to Trinity Cathedral church, resting place of Emperor Haile Selassie. The city's religious cornerstone is ringed by graves, though it's the two tombs inside that really count, for this church is as much about Selassie as saviours.

There are approximately 75 species of whales in Norway, where they are a part of the marine ecosystem of the North Sea. They either eat fish, or they compete with fish for their food. ... moreMost whales need to eat the equivalent of approximately five per cent of their body weight every day. They are beautiful and gentle giants.
The North Sea is a very rich food source. Here whales can feed all year round; these waters are the perfect habitat for many types of cetaceans such as sperm whales, humpback whales, ... morepilot whales, minke whales, fin whales and killer whales.

In summer time the Norwegian sea is populated mostly by sperm whales. They spend the summer in the cold Atlantic waters before starting their migration towards warmer waters again in the autumn.

The whales are gentle marine mammals and observing them is a moment of joy and beauty. The Sperm whales are huge mammals and they need deep waters to dive.

Where do we go?
To observe these fantastic creatures, we have to transfer to Andenes in the Vesterålen Islands.
Andenes is about 200 kilometres from Svolvær and it is the best place to spot and admire these gigantic, but gentle creatures.
It takes about 3 hours to reach Andenes from Svolvær. This is good opportunity to drive all along this small archipelago called Vesterålen.
We like to define this excursion as a fantastic and complete experience. You will experience a new archipelago and its amazing landscape and the joy of seeing the whales in their own environment.

The trip takes place directly downstream from the renowned Gudbrands Canyon, approximately 15 kilometers frow downtown Valldal, towards Trollstigen. The course is located in an breathtaking ... morecanyon, where placid water runs between vertical granite walls. Within the canyon we have built a course of obstacles, travelling down the canyon. The first challenge is a rappel down onto a large rock ledge, followed by a rope bridge, stretched across to the other side of the canyon. From there we traverse down towards the water, diving the last portion into the river. After a short swim in the refreshing water, we climb up again, ready for more jumping, swimming, climbing and ziplining. The trip ends with a swim through a white water rapid at the end of the canyon.

At the edge, the lead guide will give an informational and safety briefing to participants, before we split up into groups, and head into the abyss!
