Pond Inlet

Pond Inlet (Nunavut)



Located on the shores of North Baffin Island, overlooking the waters of Eclipse Sound across to the towering mountains and glaciers of Bylot Island and Sirmilik National Park. Pond Inlet, or Mittimatalik as local residents know it, is a place of beauty and charm where the old traditions of Inuit culture meet the latest technological advances.

This is one of the most spectacular areas to paraski or kite ski. Pond Inlet is considered one of Canada's "jewels of the North". It is one of the most picturesque communities with mountainous ranges viewable from all directions. Icebergs are most often accessible within walking distance of the community, or a short snowmobile ride in winter. If there is no wind on the bay, you can always drive toward Mont Herodier where the channel gets narrower and wind speeds increase.

Pond Inlet boasts a nearby floe edge, several dozen glaciers, ice caves to explore, and many picturesque inlets. Barren-ground caribou, ringed seal, narwhals and polar bears are just some of the wildlife that can be encountered while traveling out on the land. Nunavut also boasts one of Canada's newest national parks named after a majestic glacier which can be viewed north of the community on Bylot Island; Sirmilik National Park.
