Soper River

The Kuujuak (Soper River) is an excellent introductory-level paddling river on Baffin Island, Nunavut. The river flows through the hills and mountains of the Meta Incognita Peninsula (“The Unknown Place”) to the southern coast of Baffin Island. “Kuujjuaq” means “Big River” in Inuktitut, and it gets its English name from northern biologist J. Dewey Soper. The Kuujuak (Soper River) valley, sheltered from harsh winds, supports a “forest” of willows and a lush profusion of Arctic wildflowers. Caribou, ptarmigan, and Arctic hare make the valley their home, and you can find Arctic char in the river.
