Discover this rich and abundant place where Inuit still renew their cultural connections hunting, fishing and berry picking. Over 3000 years, successive waves of Inuit and their predecessors have flourished in this landscape. Hundreds of archaeological sites speak to the long history of dense wildlife populations that supported these thriving cultures. Retrace their footsteps, imagine their gatherings, paddle where they kayaked.

You can read about it, see pictures of it, image it, but nothing will truly prepare you for the midnight light! Paddle. Hike. Camp. At three o’clock in the morning you’ll be smiling as the sun still shines in the arctic night. Don’t forget to set the time in the camera and take a picture! Otherwise, who will believe you?

Look up and see a dazzling panorama. Swirling bands of pale green, red and purple dancing across the darkening late summer sky will hold you spellbound. Watch from the bow of an expedition cruise ship or through the door of your tent. Whichever you prefer, find yourself a
front row seat to nature’s dramatic sky spectacle.
