Iqaluit, Nunavut, Canada

Tourism Information

Iqaluit is Nunavut's central hub, buzzing with all the activity you would expect in a brand new capital city. You'll find good hotels, arctic food specialties, and options for shopping, exercise and recreation.

The community is located on south Baffin Island, overlooking Koojesse Inlet on Frobisher Bay. For centuries Inuit and their predecessors came here to fish, and the city's name means "place of fish." The landscape here is gently rolling, with treeless hills that sprout wildflowers in summer. You can easily walk to the satellite settlement of Apex. Sights in Iqaluit include the igloo shaped cathedral, St. Judes, and the Nunavut Legislature with its displays of Inuit art.
