Bhumika Arora's stunning photos. Meet popular fashion blogger Shereen Sikka. His huge ocean sailing vessel, Matahorua, was almost capsized, which would surely have been the end of Kupe and his crew.
But Kupe's quick thinking saved the day. By throwing calabashes into the sea to imitate bodies, he tricked the giant wheke.
And when it emerged from the depths, Kupe leapt onto its head and struck the blow that ended its life.
Arapaoa was the name given to that fatal blow, and that was the first name given to the South Island of Aotearoa. When Kupe returned to Te Whanganui-a-Tara, he was met with great surprise and joy.
His daughters were so sure that he had been defeated by the wheke that they had slashed their chests in mourning. So the rocks of that area were stained red with blood and are still known today as Pari Whero Red Rocks.
They then travelled around the south coast, stopping firstly at a place to gather shell fish. There they used bull kelp to make containers for storing food.
That place Sinclairs Head was named Rimu Rapa, meaning 'flattened seaweed'. After they had gathered supplies, they continued up the west coast to Porirua where they stopped at an island off the coast.
Matiu, Kupe's daughter, was so pleased that they had successfully crossed the great ocean of Kiwa and that her father had defeated the giant wheke, that she suggested naming the island Te Mana-o-Kupe-ki-Aotearoa.
Kupe agreed and the island is still known today as Mana Island. Adventure travelers and climbers alike have called Sam Ford Fjord one of the most impressive sights in the world.
There will be more chances to spot bears, seals, and whales as we cruise the fjord. This newly-formed National Wildlife Area provides key protection for an estimated 1, to 2, Bowhead Whales that inhabit the area during the late summer and fall feeding periods.
Bowheads have been recognized as threatened in Canada, and this is the first sanctuary in the world designed especially for them.
Pending permission, we set out to spot these powerful creatures today, swimming alone or in herds of up to six whales.
Bowheads are known for their massive bony skulls, which they use to break through ice up to 24 inches thick to breathe.
Unlike others, this joint American-Canadian station is still in operation today. The coast around Cape Dyer is most likely where the Norsemen first landed when they crossed over to the New World from Greenland over 1, years ago.
Today we embrace the expeditionary nature of our voyage as we cruise along the Cumberland Peninsula, scanning the dramatic shoreline for signs of Arctic wildlife.
Zodiacs are at the ready to whisk us ashore as soon as our curiosity is piqued. Today is our last day in Canada, as we travel 25 nautical miles east into the Davis Strait, to the isolated small islands of Lady Franklin and Monumental.
Both were named in honor of Sir John Franklin, and both harbor many thrilling species of Arctic wildlife. These islands are exposed and may be subject to variable weather conditions, including fog and sea ice.
The exposed rocky cliffs of Monumental Island are host to numerous bird species and are an excellent place to spot Black Guillemots, Gyrfalcons, and Peregrine Falcons.
Walrus have been known to haul out here. We recap our experiences and complete our onboard lecture presentations on the trip back toward Greenland.
Be on deck as we approach the serpentine, mile-long Kangerlussuaq Fjord, keeping an eye out for Peregrine Falcons, Gyrfalcon, and rare White-tailed Eagles.
As the waning summer sun sets behind us, we toast the end of our Arctic journey. Disembark in Kangerlussuaq this morning, and transfer to the airport for your flight to Copenhagen.
Upon arrival transfer to the Crowne Plaza Hotel for the night. Geologically speaking, Greenland is an anachronism. Not long ago, as geologists measure time, vast ice sheets covered most of North America, extending down into Kansas and Tennessee.
In that sense, the island is a window into the past, and its ice-free margins represent the environment our distant ancestors faced.

They then travelled south to Arapaoa South Island to find out how plentiful the resources were and whether or not other people lived there.
Their journey along the West Coast brought them to a river that Kupe named Arahura, meaning 'the way opened up'. They didn't discover other people, but they did find a stone they had never seen before.
Plentiful in the rivers of the south, the beautiful pounamu greenstone was recognised not only for its beauty but also for its tool making properties.
One particular type of pounamu had flecks of white running through it, which were likened to the inanga whitebait they were catching in their nets.
Kupe's wife, Hine-te-uira-i-waho named that type of greenstone Inanga for that reason. The travellers then continued down the West Coast until there was no more land to discover, and so they came around the southern coast of the South Island.
There they saw many seals and penguins. Kupe said to his travelling companion Hine-waihau, "Leave your pets here to dwell at this end of the island, for there are surely no people here".
They passed by Mana Island and Kapiti Island on the side closest to the shore, and so it was said that Kupe severed these islands from the mainland.
This occurrence was recorded in song and handed down through the generations. They sailed further north up the coast and stopped at the mouth of the Whanganui river.
While exploring the Whanganui river, one of Kupe's crew was drowned crossing the river to gather korau wild cabbage.
His name was Pawa, and so that place was named Kauarapawa. The scenery is sure to astound before you even touch down in Kangerlussuaq, the main gateway to Greenland.
On arrival, enjoy a drive through Arctic desert, tundra, and rolling countryside toward the edge of the Ice Cap in search of Caribou and shaggy Muskox before embarking the Silver Explorer, our expedition vessel and home for the next 19 days, for lunch.
Toast the adventure to come as we set sail down the mile-long Kangerlussuaq Fjord under the midnight sun. Keep an eye out for Peregrine Falcons, as this fjord hosts of their nesting sites.
A former whaling port and the second largest town in Greenland pop. Meet a sled dog team and their owners, who will tell us about sledding in Greenland and how the Greenlandic sled dog has been bred to be amongst the strongest working dogs in the world.
This evening, sail through beautiful fjords, past abandoned villages. In town, see a demonstration of ancient fishing methods and stop in at the small museum located in the former home of Greenlandic folk hero and famed polar explorer, Knud Rasmussen.
Alternatively, conditions permitting, you have the option to purchase a helicopter excursion to see the magnificent Ilulissat Icefjord by air.
The waters just north of Disko Bay are rich in Minke, Sei, and particularly Fin Whales this time of year, so keep an eye out as we enter Uummannaq Fjord.
They are now housed in the National Musuem in Nuuk. A walk through town will take you past preserved sod houses one of which was occupied until and an impressive granite church.
You may also hike the mountain for a magnificent view towards the Nuussuaq Peninsula. The small open-air museum houses the northernmost Viking artifacts ever found.
Enjoy lectures by our onboard experts on the wildlife and history of the Canadian Arctic as we make the roughly mile trip across Baffin Bay today.
This day at sea affords us the chance to watch for White-beaked Dolphins, Minke Whales, seals and Walrus. Pond Inlet is renowned as a major center, maybe the center, of Inuit art, especially printmaking and stone carving.
View a variety of techniques and styles used in creating these unique pieces in the galleries in town. Lancaster and Eclipse Sounds, which surround Bylot Island, are known to contain the richest proliferation of marine mammals in the eastern Arctic.
In particular, the great unicorns of the sea—Narwhal—congregate here once the ice pack breaks up, to escape the ravaging Orcas, who hound them mercilessly in deeper waters.
Prince Leopold, a small island further west in Lancaster Sound, is the most important station for breeding marine birds in the Canadian Arctic, with larger numbers and a greater diversity of species than anywhere else.
The island is characterized by spectacular sandstone and limestone cliffs that rise almost 1, feet out of the water.
This morning, board Zodiacs to get a close look around the island at the seabirds that make up the colony, including Black-legged Kittiwakes, Black Guillemots, Atlantic Brant, Parasitic Jaeger and Snow Bunting.
Be on the lookout for Polar Bears patrolling the beach below the cliffs. Our lecture series continues with presentations by the onboard team, who will introduce us to the awesome fjords of Northeast Baffin.
