Experience the natural wonders of one of the most unique destinations in the world with Inuit-owned Arctic Bay Adventures on Baffin Island, Nunavut.

Our multi-day, all-inclusive packages are designed by highly experienced professionals and local Inuit guides with an in-depth knowledge of the land: from the rare beauty of hiking under the midnight sun and spotting narwahl at the floe edge, to building an igloo or camping in a heated tent by the ocean after feasting on fresh-caught fish, the combination of stunning nature and local Culture offers an arctic adventure unlike any other.
