Things to do in Nunavut with kids

If you want to give kids an adventure that few ever get to experience in their life, then get out there and head to Nunavut.

It’s one of the most remote areas in the world, but one of the most incredible!  It’s an area where kids can experience fascinating cultures, untouched wilderness, and incredible wildlife.

The wilderness will really give you the most rewarding adventures.  There are national parks with sweeping glaciers, such as Wood Buffalo - one of the largest national parks in the world.

Sirmilik National Park has fun activities like boating and camping, and Ukkusiksalik National Park has cliffs, coast and tundra to explore, and also over 500 archaeological sites!

You can contact companies such as Arctic Kingdom which offer guided and tailored expeditions for incredible activities like fishing and dog sledding!  The area is also a great cultural insight for kids into the Inuit way of life.

You may not be able to pronounce some of the place names, but you will sure to come away with having been to one of the most special places to visit with kids!
