Nunavut is full of both hidden gems and world-renowned hot spots. With so much to offer, it can be hard to narrow down your must-sees. Don't worry; Team Ken Richter is here for you. Here are three things you need to add to your Nunavut bucket list today, so that you can experience this beautiful territory in all of its glory:
Mount Thor: You heard it here first; Nunavut has its very own Avenger, Mount Thor. Amusing Planet writes, "Mount Thor, officially called the Thor Peak, in Auyuittuq National Park, on Baffin Island, Nunavut, Canada, is a granite peak that features the world’s tallest purely vertical drop. The drop measures 1250m and angles inwards at 105 degrees making it more of an overhang. To put the height in context, the Eiffel Tower is 324m." Put on your Thor costume, grab your carabineers and get ready to climb! (Or, you know, view from a safe distance.)
Pond Inlet, A.K.A. Narwhal Paradise: If you are one of those people who has always wanted to see a Narwhal, this scenic town should be at the top of your list. Keep Exploring Canada writes, "Pond Inlet is home to the mystical narwhals. These unicorns of the sea famously pass through the inlet in large pods, creating an incomparable wildlife viewing experience. Immerse yourself in the local culture and history, from a local theatre group to a variety of archeological digs." Experience authentic Nunavut culture and some of the wildlife that make it so special.
Northwest Passage: This historic passage is home to ancient indigenous artifacts and settlements, along with long abandoned Hudson Bay trading posts and campsites from European explorers. Bring your binoculars and you may just be able to spot Polar Bears, Walrus', Sea Birds and, your favorite, the Narwhal. You can boat down the passage, weaving your way around icebergs, or walk the trail. Either way, you get to experience part of Canada's historic exploration route.
