Imagine a cluster of islands in a frozen sea, a home for the endangered Peary caribou, a traditional hunting and fishing area that has sustained Inuit of Resolute Bay since the time of their relocation in the 1950’s; Qausuittuq National Park is all of that and more.
Shimmering ice caps are punctured by jagged black peaks and massive glaciers fuel wild rivers. The top of the world is an extreme and exhilarating experience where groups of muskoxen roam the tundra and curious caribou pass nearby.
Paddle among seals and floating ice, listening for the breaths of narwhal and beluga whales. Ski across glaciers. Travel by snowmobile to the floe edge on the lookout for polar bears, ringed seals and walruses. Stop in at Inuit, Thule and European cultural sites. Visiting Sirmilik is the ultimate Arctic adventure.
Ukkusiksalik’s rolling ochre hills and lush tundra thrive with wildlife, and are dotted with archeological reminders of human cultures passing for millennia through this remote wilderness. Paddle or boat an inland sea amid beluga whales and seals. Hike through wildflowers and in the company of stone inuksuk beneath the glow of the Midnight Sun.
The Wrecks of HMS Erebus and HMS Terror National Historic Site is the first national historic site to be co-managed by Inuit and Parks Canada.
