Black Feather is pleased to offer the only scheduled hiking expedition to Sirmilik National Park on Bylot Island. This large and uninhabited island offers some of the best hiking in the Arctic. Ice-capped towering mountains, lush tundra valleys, glaciers, and unique, eroded rock formations called “hoodoos” showcase the incredible variety of terrain and landscapes the island has to offer.

Sirmilik National Park contains fifty different species of birds (of which thirty are known to breed) and is also known to contain more than three hundred species of plant life. Most of the hiking will be over grassy and mossy tundra, as well as some rocky moraine fields. This expedition is suitable 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.
