Breathtaking Destinations


Nowhere else in the Arctic is the absolute majesty of the land, and the rhythms of Inuit life as accessible as Pangnirtung. Also known as Pangniqtuuq in Inuktitut,meaning ‘place of bull caribou’, it is the southern community gateway to Auyuittuq National Park.

Pond Inlet

Pond Inlet (Mittimatalik- Place where Mitima is buried) is renowned for its scenery. Located at the eastern entrance to the Northwest Passage on the Eclipse Sound and overlooking famous Bylot Island, mountain ranges are viewable in all directions and icebergs often dot the ocean.


Inuvik is located on the east channel of the Mackenzie Delta, and is the administrative centre for the Inuvik Region of the Northwest Territories, and currently holds the distinction of being the northernmost Canadian community captured by Google Street View.
