Things to do
The Kitikmeot spans the northern mainland of Canada to the heart of the Northwest Passage and is a crossroads of the Arctic – bringing together an amazing array of ecosystems and cultures. It is here that the true story of Arctic exploration rests. These communities have thrived through the deep understanding of the land and waters and you can experience first hand the bounties of this understanding. Local guides and Inuit will show you the magic of the land and will tell you the story of Arctic exploration passed from generation to generation. The spectacular story of the ill-fated Franklin expedition on the HMS Terror and Erebus in 1845 ends here, in Terror Bay where the wrecks were located and the gravesites still exist on Beechy Island.
Remote lodges provide you an opportunity to connect with the land in a way that will leave you awe-struck. These experiences offer authentic interaction with Inuit culture that is both natural and immersive.
Wildlife photography and hunting opportunities are plentiful in the region and the fish caught in the Kitikmeot are some of the best you will taste.
