This fifth largest island in the World composed of small Inuit villages offers pristine, natural and most beautiful vistas of uninterrupted scenery. Located in-between Greenland and the Canadian mainland in the Nunavut territory, Baffin Island originally came to be known locally as Oikiqtaaluk. The local people still have a deep respect for the environment which features an abundance of wildlife that includes walrus, caribou, polar bear, arctic fox, hare, wolf, lemming, seals, sea-shore birds and several whale species. Baffin Island is a wonderful opportunity for the tourist to observe Arctic living conditions from close quarters.
A chance to comfortably witness the Polar Nights and the Midnight Sun phenomena, Baffin Island also allows you to tour the deep fiords and the tundra feeding landscape of Peary caribou. Showcasing dogsled and snowmobile exhibitions, base jumping cliff-sites, sea kayaking and explorations into the Sirmilik National Park, these tours are increasingly becoming popular amongst the adventurous travelers.
