Akshayuk Pass, Hiking Expedition
Challenge yourself with 11 days of full autonomy! Hike on a trail where only few hundreds of people will hike every year. After flying from Iqaluit to the small community of Qikiktarjuaq, we will meet our local guide, who will take us in his boat to the entrance of the park. Keep an eye open for polar bears, beluga and bowhead whales, and icebergs, which will be easier to spot. A hundred kilometres of Arctic lay in front of us. The next shower is at the other end of the trail, but so much awe-inspiring scenery will help you quickly forget about that!
Following the trek, an Inuit guide will take our group on a boat ride to discover the remarkable Kekerten Historical Park. This remarkable island shelters an old whaling station that would have been at its busiest in the 1870s. To this day, the artefacts on Kekerten Island are carefully preserved. This guided tour will take you through a part of history that is kept alive by a few elders in Pangnirtung, the hamlet close by.
Memories like these are not likely to fade away.
