ABOUT 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.

The glaciers 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.
