Embrace Inuit Culture
Embark on a journey to learn the wonders of the Inuit culture first-hand. Visit the largest Inuit community on Ellesmere Island,with a mere 129 people that call the coldest inhabited place on the planet home. You’ll want to dress extra warm because the annual average temperature is a startling minus 16.5 degrees Celsius!
Then experience life where the Inuit call Qausuittuq, a “place with no dawn”, because of the long winter nights. Don’t let the lengthy hours of darkened sky deter you, this prime location along the Northwest Passage offers excellent wildlife viewing in its surrounding regions, much of it in Tupirvik Territorial Park.
Best of all, visit Dorset Island at the southern tip of Baffin Island to bring a piece of Inuit culture home. Famously known as the Inuit art capital of the world, warm up by doing some shopping for exquisite Inuit artwork, one-of-a-kind crafts and stunning jewellery.
