NUNAVUT TOURISM

NUNAVUT CULTURE

 

1. BUFFIN ISLAND

NUNAVUT CULTURE

 

 

 

 

 

 

Baffin Island is a strong draw for tourists. But it can hardly be said that it suffers from invasions of visitors. The island is the fifth largest in the world with a coastline and landscape that vary considerably. On the eastern coast, very similar to Norway with its steep fiords and small offshore islands, lies a long, narrow Alpine-like mountainous zone – reaching heights of 2,591 meters in Auyuittuq National Parkon the Cumberland peninsula. The main administrative town is Iqaluiton Frobisher Bay. The only way to get to the far north island is by air, and that is rather expensive. The cost of living is high and the climate very “unfriendly”, not to mention the hordes of insects, which descend on the unfortunate traveler in summer; all in all, the region is perhaps somewhere for the specialist.

Auyuittuq National Park sits on the Cumberland Peninsula in the southeast of Baffin Island. The Penny Ice Cap, a remnant of Ice Age glaciations, takes up a large portion of the park. The landscape is characterized by broad valleys and rugged mountains with vertical walls rising up to 1,200 meters in height, that of Mount Asgard being particularly impressive. Pangnirtung Pass is a route through the park ending at the Pangnirtung Fiord.
