Utterly silent, majestically wild and hundreds of miles above the Arctic circle, Pond Inlet sits on what seems to be the edge of the world.
Let this vast expanse of dazzling white ice sink in as you absorb the surreal view of mountains, fjords and ice caves – and not forgetting the glacier-draped Arctic marvel: Bylot Island. This is a place so far north that the sun refuses to set in the summer and the moon provides the only natural light in the winter.
Explore this picturesque Inuit community with outdoor adventures, from snowmobile tours around glaciers to sea kayak rides among drifting icebergs. Spot the resident wildlife of beluga and orca whales, seals, arctic foxes, the occasional polar bear and the unicorns of the sea: the narwhal.
