Arctic Kingdom suspends all expeditions until June

TORONTO — Arctic Kingdom, which operates adventure tours in the Arctic, has announced that it will not operate any of its planned expeditions between now and June 2020 due to COVID-19.

Though Nunavut has reported 0 cases of the virus, the company made the decision out of an abundance of caution.

“The northern communities are most susceptible during this challenging time, and we believe that it is our responsibility to keep these communities safe by not bringing travellers into the area,” said Graham Dickson, Founder of Arctic Kingdom.

Dickson also noted other measures the company has taken to keep the community and its team members safe and healthy. All staff members who can do so have been asked to work from home, and food that has already been purchased for trips will be donated to the local community food bank to give support during this much needed time.

To reassure clients, Arctic Kingdom has introduced a new Flexible Booking Policy. For all bookings on any Arctic Kingdom safari/getaway between now and June 1, 2020, clients have the option to move their deposit to any safari or getaway that departs within 24 months of their initial trip date – no questions asked.

Dickson also notes that with the Canadian dollar at a low exchange rate, “now is the time to book a future expedition with us to the Canadian Arctic.”
