Nunavut Trip Planner
Welcome to Nunavut!After decades of isolation, Canada's North may finally be on the verge of a new golden age after the creation of Nunavut, Canada's newest and largest territory. With its capital in Iqaluit, the new government is focusing on developing the cultural and natural assets of a region rich in both. Certainly in terms of art the Inuit have already made an indelible mark far to the south. Distinctive soapstone carvings and breathtaking prints have long captured the imagination of art enthusiasts around the world, and today are being produced by a whole new generation of artists. A tradition of stewardship has also ensured the entire region remains rich in wildlife. Huge herds of caribou still roam in an utterly wild landscape, while wolves and foxes that would be terrified of humans elsewhere, walk by nonchalantly. It is a land rife with photographic opportunities, and cradling the breeding grounds of dozens of bird species, Nunavut is a birdwatcher's paradise.
