Explore the north end of Baffin Island on these arctic cross country skiing adventures.
Auyuittuq Ski Traverse
Auyuittuq has some of the most beautiful alpine scenery on earth. This ski touring expedition crosses the Akshayuk Pass. Starting at North Pangnitung we’ll ascend the Owl Valley. Between Glacier and Summit Lakes the magical cylindrical tower of Mount Asgard draws us onward. Then we descend the Weasel valley. Mount Thor, 1500 metres above us, is said to have the longest uninterrupted cliff face in the world. We cross the Arctic circle before our final destination at Overlord, a majestic peak overlooking frozen Cumberland Sound. This is a diverse and challenging expedition for a reasonably fit and adventurous participant.
