Taste of the Arctic Summer

OVERVIEW

Discover Canada’s real backyard. Fly a short 3 hours from Ottawa to Iqaluit and experience the best of the Arctic Summer.

During the summer months, the Arctic awakens from its winter slumber and explodes in a firework of colour to show off its raw beauty. Experience seemingly endless summer nights, exotic tundra abloom in a fiery haze of flowers, watch for whales and polar bears on a day boat excursion with Inuit guides in legendary Frobisher Bay, kayak, visit museums and art galleries all guided by the local Inuit people of Iqaluit. This action packed Getaway to the Arctic will leave you wanting more.

About Iqaluit

Capital of Nunavut.
Population: 6,200

The capital of Nunavut is located on Frobisher Bay on Baffin Island. A legacy of the fact that the community was originally a military airbase built during WWII is that the Iqaluit International Airport is the nexus of a thriving air passenger and cargo industry. Since being named the capital, infrastructure has grown at an amazing rate.

Iqaluit offers all of the modern conveniences you could need, from fine dining to shopping, as well as cultural experiences and outdoor adventures.

Just outside the city you will find a wealth of natural attractions. The picturesque Sylvia Grinnell River is just a 30-minute, one kilometer walk from Iqaluit, where you’ll find Thule archaeological sites, a variety of rare plants, several species of wildlife and some 40 species of birds. The river is a great spot to catch arctic char and the falls make a beautiful backdrop for a picnic.
