“Pang’’ is known worldwide for the impressive quality of its art, tapestry and print making. You can’t go to Pang and not fall in love with a piece of art. Our first day will be spent exploring the community, the visitor centre and the arts centre and meeting smiling children and openhearted elders along the way.
Auyuittuq National Park rolls out its trail for us. Hiking into the valley, you are invited to travel toward the Pass. A day’s hike within the park boundaries will take us through boulder fields, tundra and moraines, with high peaks and glaciers dotting the land along your hike.
On the third day, a local Inuit guide will take us to experience a piece of the Arctic from hundreds of years ago. Destination Kekerten Island, an old whaling station that has shaped the history of the area. Watch out for seals, polar bears, bowhead whales and icebergs on your way there. The island’s rich is illustrated by many artefacts and, lucky for us, our guide is an expert on that subject.
Memories like these are not likely to fade away!
