Ukkusiksalik National Park

Description: 

Ukkusiksalik National Park is Canada’s 41st national park, surrounding Wager Bay , a 100 kilometers long inlet on the northwest coast of Hudson Bay in Nunavut, Canada. The park includes 20 500 square kilometers of rolling tundra banks, unique coastal regions, cliffs, and mudflats. This parkland is uninhabited. Inuit had lived in the area from 11th century through to the 1960’s and the Hudson’s Bay Company had a trading post there from 1925-1947. Residents maintain ties to the land, and visitors may see Inuit families camping in the park practicing their traditional harvesting activities. The park has over 500 archaeological sites, including the old Hudson’s Bay Company trading post.

Visitors to Ukkusiksalik National Park can experience an Arctic adventure while experiencing Wager Bay by getting to the park by boat with experienced guides. During the boat ride, visitors will be able to view polar bears, marine life including seals, beluga whales, and occasional narwhal. The park offers day hikes lead by experienced guides.
