Canada - Nunavut (Chapter)
This is the Nunavut chapter from Lonely Planet’s Canada guidebook.
Picture a treeless, ice-encrusted wilderness lashed by unrelenting weather with a population density that makes Greenland seem claustrophobic. Add polar bears, narwhals, beluga whales and a scattered Aboriginal population who have successfully mastered a landscape so harsh that foreigners dared not colonize it.
- feel small beside the planet’s most precipitous cliffs in Auyuittuq National Park
- encounter soapstone polar bears – but watch out for real ones – in the art mecca of Cape Dorset
- chomp char, chew caribou and munch musk ox at eateries in Canada’s most curious capital, Iqaluit
- restaurants & accommodation
