Adventure & Wildlife Photographer
Michelle Valberg

For 30 years Michelle Valberg has photographed wildlife and landscapes with the intention of regenerating simple beauty into a deeper reflection of humanity.  Michelle’s portrayals of the natural world aim to draw viewers toward inner contemplation, based on the idea that building awareness and educating others through nature photography can inspire people to be better stewards of the natural world. By developing a deeper understanding of the interconnections between people, animals, and the environment, she believes that others can be motivated to take action in their local communities and beyond.

Michelle is one of six Canadian Nikon Ambassadors and the first Canadian Geographic Photographer-in-Residence.

Michelles Latest Adventures

Canada C3

Loons on Sharbot Lake

Michelle joins Adventure Canada as Resource Photographer – Aug 22-Sept 7, 2017

The Northwest Passage represents the pinnacle of Arctic exploration. On this trip, like the explorers before us, we’ll experience the quaint villages, dramatic fjords, and calving glaciers of Greenland, working our way north to spectacular Kap York. Then, crossing Smith Sound, we’ll visit Aujuittuq (Grise Fiord), Canada’s northernmost community, and pay respects at the Franklin Expedition graves at Beechey Island. Melville, Banks, and Devon Islands offer opportunities to spot Peary caribou, polar bear, walrus and musk ox—and visits to ghostly RCMP and Hudson’s Bay Company posts. Prince of Wales Strait affords a striking passage to Amundsen Gulf and our destination: Kugluktuk (Coppermine), the end of our epic journey above the Arctic Circle.
To sail the Northwest Passage is to sail living history; join the ranks of the fearless adventurers who have been lured by its spirit. Half the world away is closer than you think.
