Plan your visit
Resolute Bay is the nearest commercial airline access point with flights from Iqaluit and Yellowknife. From Resolute, a charter is required to reach Quttinirpaaq. Outfitters arrange participants’ flights, but solo travellers’ charter prices depend on fuel costs.
Weather dictates travel schedules so it’s wise to factor in time for delays.
The best time to visit is from mid-May to mid-August, when park staff are on site.
