Join us for this Arctic odyssey and sample the best and most exotic of Baffin Island. The Soper is a Canadian Heritage River. Kuujuak, "The Great River" as it is known to the Inuit, flows through the Katannilik Park, across the tundra to Lake Harbour on the Arctic Ocean .
Steeped in history and rich in flora and fauna, it is a treasure of Nunavut , Canada 's newest Territory.
The communities of Iqualuit, Kimmirut and Pangirtung, offer an opportunity to experience the unique culture of this land. Your itinerary is planned to make the most of your time in Baffin, for cultural, ecological and historical exploration.
You will float, paddle and hike the Soper River and surrounding landscape with a collection of rafts and canoes. The timing of the trip coincides with the height of the wildflower color. Hiking opportunities abound on the open tundra. The clear stream with small gorges and class I & II rapids makes for idyllic river travel. Falcons, caribou, fox, wolf, ptarmigan, geese and others, animate the landscape.
