Park access

The following are approximate dates for the methods of accessing the park. You should always check in advance with the park office in Naujaat (Repulse Bay) for this year’s likeliest scenario.

March to April: Spring trips by snowmobile or dog-team may be 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, access is by chartered aircraft only; you cannot access the park by boat.

Mid-July to October: It is possible to access the park by boat. 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.
