Spring adventure and Inuit cultural tours from the city of Iqaluit on Baffin Island


Experience a taste of the Arctic spring on this multi-activity tours in the city of Iqaluit on Baffin Island.

Revel in an Arctic spring with an array of activities from snowmobiling to ice fishing and igloo building, and experience the traditional Inuit way of life. 

Led by Inuit guides, this getaway combines the best of the early Arctic spring season and some of Iqaluit’s top highlights. 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. After a full day of discovery, keep an eye out for possible Northern Lights at night.

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.
