Nunavut is the largest province in Canada and can only be reached by air or sea. Your Nunavut travel experience will explore a number of islands that are part of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. Baffin Island is the largest in Nunavut with most of its landmass sitting above the Arctic Circle. Despite this, the island remains sparsely populated with a majority of Inuit inhabitants. This trend is found throughout the province.
Visit the capital of Nunavut - Iqaluit - found on the south of the island. Follow a guided tour through Akshayuk Pass to enter the Arctic Circle and explore the glaciers in Auyuittuq National Park. You can also camp along the way but look out for the polar bears. Or take a trip to Pond Inlet to admire the scenery and move on to Sirmilik National Park for bird watching.
You'll find yourself in constant daylight when touring Quttinirpaaq National Park. Take a floe edge tour to see the marine life of the Arctic - narwhal and beluga whale - as well as polar bears feasting on seals. Or visit Lake Hazel Basin for its thermal waters.
Try fishing at Rankin Inlet or Victoria Island. Or visit Baker Lake for a selection of Inuit art. While in Nunavut you must add snowmobiling, dog sledding and ski tours to your itinerary while visiting the islands. Or use Nunavut as a gateway to explore the North Pole.
