*NEW* Katannilik Hiking

NEW TRIP IN 2021!

Located within Katannilik Territorial Park in Nunavut, the Itijjagiaq Trail starts at Frobisher Bay and crosses the rolling hills of the Meta Incognita peninsula. The trails is not marked but there is a suggested route to follow. Itijjagiaq means “over the land”. This traditional trail has been used by the Inuit of Kimmirut and Iqaluit for generations. Today, this trail is followed by skiers, snowmobilers, dog teams, and hikers, as well as the Inuit who travel between Kimmirut and Iqaluit and continue to use the Soper River valley as their traditional hunting area. There is a variety of terrain, from rounded granite hills, lakes and ponds, creek crossings and finally the descent down the spectacular Soper River valley.

Choose between three options: opt for a shorter hike from Frobisher Bay to Mount Joy over 8 days, fly back to Iqaluit; do the full traverse on foot, beginning in Frobisher Bay and ending in the community of Kimmirut, an expedition which lasts 15 days; the third option is to hike from Frobisher Bay to Mount Joy, then hop into SOAR canoes on the Soper River paddling trip so you can explore both sides of the Soper River valley over the next week.

More details to be announced soon on our Twitter page! If you're interested in a longer hike or paddle on Baffin Island, check out our other offerings in the area here.
