Book a trip with Quark Expeditions and Chris Hadfield
Join Colonel Chris Hadfield, the first Canadian Commander of the International Space Station, on an expedition to explore the high Arctic on the icebreaker Kapitan Khlebnikov. “This is the ultimate earthly adventure, where real learning happens,” says Hadfield who calls the trip, “almost like a space expedition of its own.” As a bonus, fellow explorers will be treated to “Chris Hadfield’s Generator,” a science-based variety show hosted by the space walker. Offered by Quark Expeditions, now in its 25th year of providing polar travel, the 18-day adventure begins on August 22 in Ottawa with a charter flight to Kangerlussuaq, Greenland. The all-inclusive price for the Best of the Canadian High Arctic package is US$21,945. quarkexpeditions.com/en/arctic/expeditions/arctic-icebreaker-expedition-best-of-the-canadian-high-arctic.
