Located on the eastern coast of Baffin Island, Clyde River, Nunavut, has become known for both preservation of Inuit culture and the majestic cliffs of the many fiords and mountains in the area.

There is a special magic in the air around Clyde River. Its Inuktitut name, Kangiqtugaapik, meaning ‘nice little inlet,’ belies its stunning beauty and its importance to Inuit for nearly 2,000 years. Here is where Inuit and Norse Vikings had first contact around 1000 AD, long before the British explorers and the whalers arrived. Here you will find a mystical beauty in a wonderful, abundant land. You can travel with local guides deep in the fiords and soak in the majesty of the peaks.
