For serious wilderness adventurers, Quttinirpaaq National Park offers the rarest of opportunities: the chance to explore a 37 775 km2 arctic landscape without a single developed trail. In the summer months, the sun shines 24 hours a day and you may camp anywhere you like, except at archaeological sites.
Select campsites in durable locations where signs of your occupation will be minimized, such as areas with little or no vegetation. Avoid camping near potential wildlife habitat such as sedge meadows. Appropriate site selection is especially vital for base camps or if you are traveling in a large group.
