The people of this spectacular land await you with open arms and smiles so genuine you will quickly realize this is no normal travel experience.
Iqaluit is the capital of Canada’s newest territory, Nunavut, and lies just 313 kilometers south of the arctic circle at the end of Frobisher Bay on Baffin Island. Inuit are steeped in a culture thousands of years in the making. Our art is world famous for its storytelling of both the modern and ancient ways of our land. You will see large dramatic sculptures in our public spaces. Paintings, carvings, and crafts can be found for purchase in various retail boutiques, galleries and restaurants around Iqaluit. Even our clothing is art and hand-crafted garments are a normal part of life here.
There is much to do, come experience the exhilaration of dog sledding or snowmobiling on a crisp -45 degree celsius day. In the summer months, when the sun barely sleeps, go camping, fishing, kayaking or enjoy guided tundra hikes. And if that is not enough, the Aurora Borealis puts on its spectacular show from October to April.
