      Where to sleep (traditionnal camp)

      Amazed by snow, ice and frosbites ?

      WHO WE ARE

      Northerners speak “Good Day” in no fewer than 11 official languages and many more, from countries that range from Africa to Greenland. Visitors will always be welcomed in English and Inuktitut, but chances are just about every second person you meet can speak at least one other language.

      Roughly half our 50,000 residents are of Aboriginal origin. The larger centres, Yellowknife, Inuvik and Hay River, and Iqaluit, Rankin Inlet, are also home to more recent arrivals.

      Who are we? Surviver's, we are the Inuit and the Inuvialuit, the Gwich’in, the and Metis, the Arctic people, the Northerners and the Surviver's, people of the SEAL "NETSILIKMIUT", "UKUHIKSALIKMIUT".

      Today, as yesterday, friendly, open and adventurous Northerners add to the charm of the Nunavut Territoies. You’ll meet them in every community and by travelling with our Nunavutmuit and guides. And every one has a great story to tell.
