Parks Canada requires that you visit Ukkusiksalik with a licenced guide, due to the extremely high density of polar bears in Wager Bay. Your group should have advanced skills in wilderness first aid and be prepared to handle any medical, wildlife or weather related emergency.

Local outfitters

Local outfitters can access the park by boat from mid-July to October. It is a 7-hour boat trip from the closest community or a charter flight can be arranged with an airline. For information about local outfitters, contact the local visitor centres. It is your responsibility to ensure your guides and outfitters are currently licensed to operate in the park before hiring them to go into Ukkusiksalik National Park. Please contact Hamlet offices for a list of Outfitters with business licenses.
