Kimmirut: An internationally renowned artists colony

Kimmirut is Inuktitut for heel. A rocky outcrop near the hamlet reminded residents of the back of a human heel, thus the name. The hamlet of 425 is home to two internationally renowned Inuit carvers, Mark Pitseolak and Pitseolak Qimirpik. At the community art gallery, visitors can immerse themselves in the work of a number of local artisans. You will spend one night in a hotel in Kimmirut, providing time to wander the seashore or watch the starry night sky.

Iqaluit: The Territorial capital

Nunavut's territorial capital is a vibrant city with a strong appreciation for snowmobiles. Drivers immediately feel at home in this city located just south of the Arctic Circle. Visit the Nunatta Sunakkutaangit Museum and the Unikkaarvik Visitor Centre to understand the city's history and culture.
