About This Event
The Firth River is one of the world’s great rivers, affectionately dubbed, “Serengeti of the North”. This expedition is extremely rare as the region is visited by a handful of traveler each year. Beyond its inherent beauty, the Firth is the sole means of access to a high Arctic region in Canada that is the summer home for 120,000 West Porcupine caribou herd. Migrating in small bands from their southern wintering grounds, these caribou congregate in coastal calving grounds before moving in huge herds across the Firth River. By special permit and in the company of professional guides, Firth River rafting guests with ROAM have a unique opportunity to witness this amazing wildlife viewing event.
