Nunavut is blessed with some of the most stunning peaks and glaciers in the world.
Some of the best places to explore Nunavut’s untamed wilderness are the national parks. Choose your next destination from five pristine landmarks: Auyuittuq, Sirmilik, Quttinirpaaq, Qausuittuq, and Ukkusiksalik National Parks. Each of them is very remote and with their own unique charms.
From Mount Thor featuring the Earth’s largest vertical drop at 4,101 ft (1,250 m), to the world’s biggest flock of greater snow geese and white, backpacking the national parks tops the list for fun things to do in Nunavut!
Auyuittuq, Sirmilik, and Quttinirpaaq National Parks are the most popular options for hikers. Cross the Arctic Circle, wander together with caribou or simply contemplate some of the world’s most phenomenal nature.
