An "Exploration Live" Adventure From - Nunavut's Barbeau Peak


The Summits of Canada Expedition team has been busily preparing for the last year and is now ready to venture off to the final peak of the group's 11 year quest and adventure learning project! That's right, this year will see the team head north, waaaaay up north, to the top of Canada for a visit to Barbeau Peak and the highpoint of Nunavut.

Taking place during the middle to end of June, 2017, this expedition to Canada's remote arctic archipelago will be the farthest trip to date. What's also unique and very special about this adventure learning expedition, is that it will take place during Canada's 150th Birthday. Talk about an event worth celebrating!

Click the links to the right to find and follow the team, discover and access some great arctic lesson plans, check out photos & videos after the climb, and to take part in a fun and unique CanaTrek Prayer Flag 150 Contest in celebration of Canada's 150th!
