Activities

Though remote, Auyuittuq is the most accessible of the Nunavut parks; fiords allow boat and snowmobile travel from nearby Inuit communities and its wild interior is reachable via Akshayuk Pass. While it is a place of moderate to extreme adventure for hikers, skiers and mountain climbers tackling vertical walls like Thor Peak, its raw beauty can also be experienced on a spring snowmobile day-trip to the Arctic Circle or short summer hike to Ulu Peak.
