The best period to go to Rankin Inlet would be in Spring. My reason is that there would be lots of on the land trips to go on, see exciting things, also to fish in the Inuit's traditional way. You can also go hunting for seals on the flow edge and the geese star to come over. There also lots of community things going on like the annual Pakallak Tyme events going on, see the community get together. Spring is the best time to go, although, most blizzards come at the time of the season from Winter to Summer. But hey! Lots of snow :D Delighted to share.
Well, the Landing stripe and the Motel is located in Igloolik, and this is what you need to visit the area. The rest is out in the Foxe Basin ....
