Attending the Spirit of the Arctic Tourism Summit

-

WRITTEN BY ALLISON SILVAGGIO

Attending the Spirit of the Arctic Tourism Summit in Nunavut’s capital of Iqaluit helped expand my knowledge on travelling to the North.

I have been lucky enough to visit 3 of the Arctic communities, including Pond Inlet, Cambridge Bay and Naujaat (which is located on the Arctic Circle).

Some of the highlights during our visit included:

  • Meeting with the local outfitters from several communities to learn more about touring available.
  • Trying some of the local cuisine, such as caribou stew and Arctic char.  *I recommend a visit to the Black Heart Café for a Turmeric Latte!
  • Attending the annual spring Toonik Tyme Festival to enjoy Skijoring, a winter sport in which a person on skis is pulled by a dog (or sometimes a dog is pulled by the skier).
  • Purchasing a carving from one of the local artists, and enjoying an amazing throat singing performance.
  • And taking part in Traditional Inuit Games, trying exercises such as the airplane and the kneel jump.

Realizing my love for the North, the culture and vastness of the land, I am always excited to return. Contact us to help you plan your own adventure.
