A mountain range in Nunavut


The northernmost inhabited place in the world, Nunavut is the True North. This is a place like no other, where a pristine tundra that stretches as far as the eye can see is punctuated by dramatic fjords, giant glaciers and iconic wildlife.

Although vast in size, Nunavut is Canada’s least populated province. The Inuit have lived in this remote region for 5,000 years, and today make up 84% of the population. Visitors can open their eyes to their way of life with storytelling, arts and crafts, and harvesting and fishing. If you have a spirit of adventure, Nunavut welcomes you.

The territory of Nunavut — which name means “our land” in Inuktitut — is brimming with cultural experiences. Uncover the traditions and survival skills that locals have adapted for the extreme Arctic conditions, like igloo building. Admire otherworldly landscapes while spotting the world’s most exotic animals, from narwhal to beluga whales and polar bears. Be captivated as you watch traditional Inuit performing arts unlike anything you’ve seen before, from throat singing to drum dancing.


Frobisher Bay

On the distant shores of Frobisher Bay, Iqaluit is remote—north of the 60th parallel and high above the tree-line—but the capital of Nunavut also offers plenty of cultural cred.


Don’t miss the iconic spots and hidden gems. No matter where you go in Nunavut, there are amazing itinerary ideas for you to explore.
