Iqaluit Vacation Packages & Tours
Meaning “Place of Many Fish”, Iqaluit is the economic hub of Nunavut, maintaining strong ties to its indigenous Inuit culture. Many Inuit artists pass down their traditions and share vibrant stories of the land through art, music, and film featured at galleries, museums, and annual festivals held on Iqaluit’s breathtaking lands. Artisan shops feature local products and creations, allowing you to take a piece of Iqaluit’s rich culture home with you.
Locals take every opportunity to get outdoors and enjoy the natural environment, no matter the time of year. Get the lay of the land via dogsled, snowmobile, plane, or boat, giving you a deeper understanding of Nunavut’s culture, deeply rooted in adaptability to the wild landscapes. Venture into the Arctic on a tundra buggy, an exhilarating adventure as you cross barren but beautiful scenes into untamed lands.
The ice-capped Everett Mountains protect the bay on which Iqaluit sits, where seals, whales, and seabirds reign supreme. Off the shores of Iqaluit lies Qaummaarviit Territorial Historic Park, an archaeological marvel containing the remains of the ancient Thule people. Hugging the shoreline is the equally impressive Sylvia Grinnell Territorial Park, providing breathtaking views of Frobisher Bay as water levels rise and fall in some of the highest tides in the world, second in Canada only to the Bay of Fundy. Take a deep breath as you look out at the shimmering waters, allowing the fresh air to clear your mind of your daily worries and bring you a new level of inner peace.
