Auyuittuq National Park in Canada’s eastern Arctic has some of the most beautiful alpine scenery on earth. We meet in Pangnirtung, Nunavut – a remote Inuit hamlet on the shore of Pangnirtung Fiord. From there we will travel by motor boat to Overlord Peak at the end of the Fiord and help each other put on our packs for the first steps north on our 30-km journey. We will ascend the Weasel River Valley, passing Crater Lake, before reaching the Arctic Circle. Across the valley we’ll see Schwartzenbach Falls. Shortly thereafter, we’ll reach our turnaround point at Windy Lake. The valley beyond takes us to Thor Peak, which rises 1500 metres from the valley floor. Here, we often take a long day-hike with light packs to view Thor Peak before turning back toward the sea.

This “Auyuittuq Quick Escape” hike is a suitable expedition for any reasonably fit hiker with some previous backpacking experience. An adventurous novice could also consider the trip. We will be carrying full packs, and, in places, the route is challenging.
