Take a ride across the frozen tundra by snowmobile, try your hand at building an igloo, catch Arctic char while ice fishing and delve into Inuit history and culture at Iqaluit’s museums and art galleries.

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 Territorial Park and River is just a one kilometre walk from Iqaluit. Here, you’ll find Thule archaeological sites, a variety of rare plants, several species of wildlife, and some 40 species of birds. The river is also a great spot to catch Arctic char and the falls make a beautiful backdrop for a picnic.
