Park access

Ukkusiksalik National Park is open year-round. Below are approximate dates for different methods of accessing the park. Always check in advance with the park office for this year’s likeliest scenario. You can also check Environment Canada's Canadian Ice Service website for arctic ice conditions.

March to May: Spring trips by snowmobile or dog team are usually possible until mid-May. By late May, snow and ice melt make travel possibilities unpredictable.

June to mid-July (sea ice break-up): During ice break-up, park access is by chartered aircraft only; boat access is not possible.

Mid-July to October: Boat access is possible until late October. The best time for hiking and camping is from mid-July through August.

November to March: Fall and winter access is not advisable due to heightened bear hazard, weather and darkness.
