2019 Arctic Adventure Sweepstake

UPDATE: The draw for the Up Here 2019-20 Arctic Sweepstake, scheduled to take place April 1, will be delayed a few weeks, while we wait for the final batch of entries to arrive in Yellowknife. They were sent in error directly to Adventure Canada, who are now experiencing problems accessing their office, so are unable to mail them to us right now.  

The prize for the Arctic Sweepstake, an Arctic Cruise for two scheduled for summer 2020, will now be adjusted to a similar cruise, but in the summer of 2021, since the government has cancelled all sailings of cruise ships to the arctic during the summer of 2020.


Win an expedition cruise to the heart of the Arctic in our 2019 Arctic Adventure Sweepstakes.

Explore three Arctic regions during 12 days in July 2020. From Ottawa, you and a guest will fly to Iqaluit, capital of Nunavut. Boarding the Ocean Endeavour, you'll set sail for south Baffin Island to meet artists and visit the communities of Kinngait and Kimmirut. From there the cruise will take you along the Nunavik coast of Arctic Quebec before finally crossing the much-storied Davis Strait to Greenland to explore the deep fjords and several vibrant Greenland communities, including the capital, Nuuk. Disembark in Kangerlussuaq for your charter flight back to Toronto. During the trip, you'll get to board Zodiacs to seek whales, birds, bears, and caribou. Journey with scientists, historians, Inuit artists, and culturalists.

The trip includes passage for two in a category six cabin, airfare from Ottawa to Iqaluit and Kangerlussuaq to Toronto, guided activities, sightseeing and community visits, an educational program, evening entertainment, and all shipboard meals.
