Helicopter flightseeing and Zodiac cruises along this enchanting stretch of coastline provide awe-inspiring perspectives of some of the most remote and picturesque landscapes on Earth.

Meander through the mesmerizing maze of deep, windswept fjords, narrow channels, and isolated bays by Zodiac, and hike through some of the world’s most spectacular terrain as your Expedition Team keep watch for the wildlife spectacles all around you.
