Auyuittuq National Park in Canada’s eastern Arctic has some of the most beautiful alpine scenery on earth. Beginning in Pangnirtung, Nunavut Рa remote Inuit hamlet on the shore of Pangnirtung Fiord Рwe will be taken by motor boat to Overlord Peak. We will help each other put on our packs for the first steps north on our 70-km loop hiking route. Over the next several days, we will explore the Akshayuk Pass from Overlord Peak to Summit Lake. Weather permitting, we may get the opportunity to view a spectacular, cylindrical tower called Mount Asgard Рbefore turning back toward the sea.

This “Auyuittuq Classic” 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.
