Wonderfully placed in spectacular surroundings, close to nearby outdoor activities, the wilderness lodges of Nunavut give you a natural balance of freedom, adventure and local friendships. You’ll arrive at your lodge on floatplane, boat, dogsled or snowmobile depending on the season and then head out for select experiences – trekking, fishing, wildlife photography, sea kayaking by icebergs, rafting down rapids, fat biking, para or cross-country skiing – or moving across the tundra on dogsleds, ATVs or snowmobiles.
In Iqaluit, the dining options will delight a range of appetites – from fine French dining at the Discovery’s Granite Room to delicious shawarma at the Yummy Shawarma to standard pub fare, with a northern twist at the Storehouse.
