Best places to visit in Nunavut: discover the Top destinations of Nunavut
Nunatta Sunaqutangit is a museum on Inuit culture in Iqaluit. Visit the town of Cape Dorset for a look into the traditional Inuit culture and art. For a unique experience, try dog-sledging, the traditional mode of travel by the Inuit people available at Pond Inlet.
Best known for its natural beauty, Nunavut is ideal for the adventurous. Baffin Island and the Sirmilik National Park offer some of the most remote and isolated hikes with river crossings and glacier travel. Visit the Auyuittuq National Park for cross-country skiing, especially in the Akshayuk Pass. Baker Lake is famous for Arctic paddling adventures. The Thelon River and Kazan River offer kayaking and canoeing opportunities. Expeditions to the North Pole are organised from Nunavut as well.
Those with a quieter holiday in mind could visit the Ellesmere Island National Park, just 800 km from the North Pole, for a breath-taking view. Wildlife-viewing in this park offers visitors a glance at exotic animals such as arctic fox, musk ox, caribou and the grizzly bear. The best way to enjoy is to stay a while in a nature lodge. The coasts of Baffin Island, with countless inlets and bays, are ideal for whale-watching.
