Auyuittuq National Park of Canada

Dog sledding

Dogsledding © Parks Canada

Traditionally, dog sledding was the main method of winter travel in the arctic. Today most Inuit travel by snowmachine, but a few still maintain dog teams. A spring trip to the park boundary over the sea ice by dog team (from Pangnirtung or Qikiqtarjuaq) is a truly unique experience. Contact the park office in Pangnirtung for a list of outfitters who provide dog sled tours.
