TRAVEL TO IQALUIT FROM OTTAWA AND CHECK INTO YOUR HOTEL.

In the afternoon, enjoy an in-depth guided tour of Iqaluit and the nearby community of Apex and visit a variety of Iqaluit’s attractions and highlights. This may include the Nunatta Sunakkutaangit Museum, Unikkaarvik Visitor Centre, the original Hudson's Bay Company Trading Post and more.

Day 2

Your guide will meet you at the hotel and drive you to Sylvia Grinnell Territorial Park for a hike along the Sylvia Grinnell River.  Don’t forget your camera and keep your eyes open for wildlife. A packed lunch will be provided. The park is an excellent hiking location for viewing the beautiful scenery, wildlife and flora of the eastern arctic region. Hiking routes through the park vary in length and level of difficulty, from easy to challenging. The well-travelled River Valley route passes through birding areas and the park’s coastal landscape. The terrain varies from gravel roadway to uneven tundra and boulder fields. The Hilltops and Meadows route allows hikers to experience tundra meadows, bedrock outcrops and unobstructed views of the surrounding region from several highpoints in the park. This route is considered a hike over uneven ground with some steep elevations. It has trail markers to aid in navigation around sensitive environments. Hikers are encouraged to take side trips from each of the main routes.

Interested in fishing for Arctic char at the river? Let us know in advance and for a small fee we will provide a license and tackle for the hike.

Your guide will meet you at your hotel at a prearranged time. Enjoy kayaking in Frobisher Bay in the morning and a packed lunch served on the tundra. Explore this amazing area in Frobisher Bay on a guided hike. If conditions allow we will aim to explore Qaummaarviit Territorial Park. The park is rich in archeological artifacts dating back to the Thule culture; demonstrating the inventiveness and adaptability of these remarkable people. The rocky landscape of the island is broken up by patches of lush vegetation and the 11 semi-buried sod houses that give the visitor an idea of the living conditions on the island at the time of the Thule people.
