In the summer of 1998, I took part in a 6 week expedition with my school to the Auyuittuq National Park in Baffin Island, a place that none of us knew much about and which is largely ignored by guidebooks.
This was the first page I attempted to make, and I only recently realised that I've neglected it quite a bit...so, I'm going to add more photos and text in some travelogues...some have appeared already, about Iqaluit, Pangnirtung, Broughton Island and the boat trip to the national park (see travelogue box on left!) This is only for the first week of the expedition...plenty more to come, including the national park itself (have to root out diaries first, though)...watch this space!
For more practical information, and info on the whole Nunavut region, try visiting <a href="http://www.nunatour.nt.ca/">Nunavut Tourism</a> . I recently remembered a very brief stopover in Kuujjuaq, Northern Quebec, on the way to Iqaluit, which led me to investigate further....so if you are interested in leraning about that community and others like it, head to <a href="http://www.nunavik-tourism.com/">Nunavik Tourism</a>.
To follow the expedition from start to finish, you should begin by looking at my Iqaluit page, followed by Broughton Island. The Boat Trip and the Auyuittuq National Park travelogues are below, then have a look at my Pangnirtung page. To round it off, visit Montreal, and try to see it from our perspective...this huge city after 5 weeks in the middle of nowhere!
My fondest memory of the expedition was probably the boat trip from Broughton Island through the North Pangnirtung... more travel advice
Watch out for bears, and get local advice! The emergency huts sited throughout the trail are only for emergencies, so... more travel advice
