AUYUITTUQ NATIONAL PARK TRIPS -- Auyuittuq
means ‘Land that Never Melts’. It is
a unique arctic wilderness of ice caps, mountain
peaks, deep valleys and spectacular vistas on Baffin
Island. This special wilderness has been protected
as one of Canada’s most northerly national
parks. At the heart of the park is the massive
Penny Ice Cap, whose radiating valley glaciers
are still actively shaping the land.
flow down into the surrounding treeless valleys,
where they melt into swift rivers that rush over
the rock and tundra valley floors to the ocean.
Above soar some of the worlds most picturesque
mountains. This powerful landscape reflects the
Inuit belief that time is infinite and unending.
The harsh variable climate, only briefly moderated
during the long days of summer, sustains a very
limited number of plant and animal species.
