Hotel-based summer adventure tours from the city of Iqaluit on Baffin Island


Enjoy a taste of the Arctic summer on this multi-sport tour from the city of Iqaluit, Nunavut. Discover the colour, vibrancy, and tranquillity of an Arctic summer on this fun-filled getaway.

As the Arctic awakens from its winter slumber, its raw and pristine beauty shines in the summer months. Admire the exotic tundra blooming with brilliant wildflowers under almost 24-hour sunshine.

Led by Inuit guides, watch out for whales and polar bears on a boat trip on Frobisher Bay. Enjoy kayaking and visiting museums and art galleries to learn more about Inuit culture and history.

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.
