Navigate the ancient heart of arctic mystery, where Inuksuik whisper tales of an unforgotten past. Inuksuk Point is known as Inukaugasait, the place of many, many inuksuit.

We’ll travel by sea 150 kilometres west along the south Baffin coastline to Inuksuk Point. It’s one of the most remarkable ancient sites in the eastern Arctic.

Over one hundred inuksuit (stone figures erected in former times) remain standing on this site shrouded in mystery.

Other ancient sites and camps, long abandoned, wait to be explored. The winter camp of early explorer and photographer Donald MacMillan lies en route at Schooner Harbour.

This coast has the lure of untouched wilderness with spectacular scenery and beautiful vistas to discover. The seascape and landscape are breathtaking. Flora is in full bloom. Wildlife is plentiful during the summer season. Seals, walrus, caribou, arctic foxes and hares, polar bears and many species of birds roam freely.

We will set up tent camps along the coast as we explore this route. This five-day, four-night expedition by sea is for adventurers who thrive on discovering the unknown.
