Prepare for the Adventure of a Lifetime

Travelers may find that their personal itineraries are in conflict with the schedule dictated by wind, cold and storm. Wise northern travelers will learn from Inuit and adjust their travel to the natural rhythms of the land they are visiting.

If you come north with an inflexible schedule, you run the risk of remembering your once-in-a-lifetime trip only for its frustrations. But come prepared to accept the Arctic on its own terms, and it will open its heart to you.

Visitors to Auyuittuq National Park should be experienced in and well-prepared to endure the challenges of backcountry travel. They should be prepared for unpredictable weather and rugged terrain. When planning a trip to Auyuittuq National Park, start by reading the Visitor Information Package.
