Adventure Canada & the Walrus Foundation Cruise the Canadian Arctic

Join CBC's Shelagh Rogers, Musician Barney Bentall and Walrus Publisher Shelley Ambrose in the Arctic - September 2 - 12, 2008

Attention: Arts/Entertainment Editor, Environment Editor, Science Editor, Travel/Tourism Editor MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 5, 2008) - Since 1988, Adventure Canada has offered small-ship expeditionary cruising programs featuring top-notch resource staff and tour leaders renowned for their scientific expertise as well as their enthusiasm for the regions they share with their co-adventurers. Cruise ships of less than 100 passengers feature high staff to passenger ratios, a relaxed and intimate atmosphere and a sense of community and shared experience.

Current scientific research speculates that rapid shifts in the Arctic climate will ultimately alter the nature, geography and inhabitants of some of the world's last untouched wilderness. This year's Baffin Expedition runs from Kuujjuaq in Northern Quebec, all the way up the coast of Baffin Island to Resolute Bay, Nunavut.

The voyage is presented in association with the Walrus Foundation, publishers of the award-winning Walrus Magazine, and promises to be an open forum of discussion on all things Arctic, from politics to the environment and from art to archeology. Featured guests include Walrus Publisher Shelley Ambrose, CBC's Shelagh Rogers, Musician Barney Bentall, documentary filmmaker John Houston, botanist Carolyn Mallory, culturalist Aaju Peter, Anthropologist Ellen Bielawski, ornithologist Mark Mallory and Artist Jolly Atagooyuk.

To celebrate their 20 year anniversary of hosting journeys to some of the world's most exotic destinations, Adventure Canada announces a one-time only rate reduction on select cabins for its 2008 Baffin Expedition to Canada's Arctic. Travelers can take advantage of savings of up to $2,000 per couple until May 14, 2008.

Adventure Canada has been recognized as one of the "Best Adventure Travel Companies on Earth" by National Geographic Adventure Magazine and was awarded the Cruise Vision Award by the Newfoundland and Labrador Cruise Association. /For further information: Also visit www.adventurecanada.com - we have plenty of stunning images to illustrate any story.
