 In the summer of 2009, construction of a panoramic boardwalk at the Pingo Canadian Landmark was completed.  The boardwalk is an amazing structure that spans about 429 meters in length from the boat dock and ends at a circular platform that provides the perfect viewing and photographic opportunity to the largest Pingo in Canada, Ibyuk.
