Activities and experiences
Port au Choix National Historic Site
Discover the mysteries and remarkable ingenuity of four ancient cultures that once inhabited Port au Choix. In the Visitor Centre, see original artifacts including spearheads, bone needles and religious artifacts from the Maritime Archaic Indians, Groswater Paleoeskimo, Dorset Paleoeskimo, and Recent Indian groups. Tour interactive exhibits, and see a life-size, replica Dorset dwelling. Hike limestone barrens and coastlines to view sacred burial grounds, ancient settlements, and rare arctic wildflowers.
Go on a guided tour to explore the rare and fragile limestone barrens, home to shoreline fossils and rare arctic plants found nowhere else in Canada, and some species found nowhere else in the world.
In a harsh and changeable Arctic climate, seals were one of the major sources of subsistence for ancient cultures. In this hands-on program, learn how critical seals and sealskin items have been to ancient and existing Aboriginal cultures.
Travel through time on hiking trails through dramatic limestone barrens, to coastal trails ideal for seal and caribou spotting, and archeological finds including a 4,000 year old Maritime Archaic burial ground.
