Auyuittuq National Park

Adorned by majestic rock-carved towers shooting straight for the sky lining up an immense valley set in the middle of the Penny Ice Cap, Auyuittuq National Park is without a doubt one of the most impressive places on earth. Bisecting the park from North to South, the Akshayuk Pass, will take you over barren plateaus and soggy, fertile tundra to one of the park’s most spectacular vistas—Mount Thor. On your way, you will have the opportunity to see impressive rock formations dating back to the last ice age, moraines and boulder fields, with sharp peaks and a huge glacier in the backdrop. So many images that will remain with you forever.

Akshayuk Pass, Hiking Expedition

From July 17 to July 30, 2017
Akshayuk Pass, Hiking Expedition
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.

Auyuittuq, Hiking Expedition

Auyuittuq, Hiking Expedition
Auyuittuq, Hiking Expedition
Auyuittuq (in Inuktitut: the place that never melts) is a large valley cutting the ice cap from the North to the South. You are invited to travel up that valley toward the Pass; after a two-day hike brings us to Windy Lake, where we’ll set our base camp, we will set off for Mt. Thor, one of the most awe-inspiring vistas in the park. Boulder fields, tundra, moraines, high peaks and glaciers will be part of the land all along your hike.
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.
