Arctic Return Expedition Project

$35,930 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 75 people in 17 months
In late March 2019, the Arctic Return Expedition left Naujaat (Repulse Bay) in Nunavut and embarked upon a 650 km trek across Boothia Peninsula to Rae Strait. The route was roughly the same taken by Orcadian explorer John Rae in 1854 with William Ouligbuck and Thomas Mistegan, his Indigenous companions. Travelling on skis the Arctic Return Expedition paid tribute to, celebrated and honoured Rae, one of the greatest explorers who ever lived.
Much like another great explorer, Roald Amundsen, Rae’s success was due in large part to his willingness to learn from the Indigenous people and culture of the region he explored. Rae travelled with patience, humility, respect and honesty. It was during his 1854 expedition that Rae and his companions discovered the final link to the first navigable Northwest Passage. 
The team is delighted to announce that, despite incredibly cold conditions, the expedition was a great success. We would like to thank every single person who contributed and supported us through GoFundMe.  Simply put, the expedition could not have happened without you. Thank you.
