Plan your visit
Welcome! Tunngasugit! ᑐᙵᓱᒋᑦ!
For thousands of years the ancestors of Inuit traveled in this place. Inuit travelers to this day let the weather, the seasons, and the rhythms of the land set their travel schedules. If you come north with an inflexible schedule, you run the risk of remembering your trip only for its frustrations. But come prepared to accept the Arctic on its own terms, and it will open its heart to you.
When planning your trip to Auyuittuq, leave time in your itinerary in case of weather or flight delays.
Located on south-eastern Baffin Island, Auyuittuq is among the most popular national parks in Nunavut. Your visit to Auyuittuq starts with a short flight from Iqaluit to either Pangnirtung or Qikiqtarjuaq. From either location, outfitters will take visitors by boat up nearby fiords to the trailheads within the park.
Whether you visit Auyuittuq for a day or embark on a multi-week adventure, you will require permits, orientation and de-briefing in the communities. Remember! Self-guided travellers must be experienced and self-sufficient.
