An epic experience with towering mountains, fierce winds, and cold temperatures. For people who are comfortable winter camping off the grid, this is an awesome destination that you will not soon forget. Thanks to the Park staff in Pangnirtung who answered all of our questions.

We always wanted to hike this trail when we lived in the Arctic, but never had the time. You can easily go by boat to the Pang trail head and walk up for several hours to get a bit of a feel for the park and scenery, or take much more time and walk to the trail head. The huge... More

Beautiful park with challenging terrain so carefully scrutinize your groups ability or consider hiring a guide/outfitter. A Map of the Akshayuk Pass can be purchased online or at the Park Office. The map includes plenty of helpful and interesting information. Take note that there are many areas with no visible trail - just pick the best line! Hikers should arrive... More

Chose Peter Kilabuk as a guide. He is very reliable and we had a unique experience scallop dragging. He was on time to pick us up after a long day in the Pass... The people at the Park office are great and very helpful.

This place is utterly beautiful - it was extreme weather when we were camping, as low as -30 with wind chill, so be prepared! Best thing I have done!

My wife and I did a ten-day hike in Auyuittuq some years ago (prior to the date in the required drop-down window). This is a haunting, incredibly beautiful place that is well worth the effort. You will never forget it. Not without risk, especially if you fall into the water during one of the many stream crossings and get hypothermia,... More

I did Auyuittuq in July/Aug 2011. This is easily the best hike of my life. Pure wilderness, absolute solitude. I spent 8 days in the park and those were indeed one of the most memorable days of my life. If you want to experience this park in its entirety - do the full Akshayuk pass from North to South (Total... More
