Owner description: For hardy souls, this rugged island lying north of the Labrador Sea is covered mostly by glaciers and rolling tundra.
Reviewed 26 September 2011

We went by small cruise ship designed for the Arctic to several places on Baffin Island.
It was a memorable trip. Initially I raised my eyebrows as the cost was high, but it turned out to be a great experience.
The cruise started in, Greenland, where we visited a glacier, followed by a visit to the small Inuit community of Kangaamiut and the capital Nuuk, the only place with a harbour big enough for a ship with 90 passengers.
We crossed the Davis Stait and arrived on Baffin Island by Pangnirtung followed by Savage Islands where we watched the polar bears on shore from our Zodiacs, Lake Harbour (or Kimmirut), Cape Dorset (or Kinngait) on Baffin Island where we visited Malikjuaq Territorial Park with archeological sites dating hundreds of years.
The next stop was Douglas point on the north shore of Quebec for a nature hike, and a final stop in Frobisher Bay (now Iqualuit, the capital on Nunavut) wher we saw the amazing interior of the Legislative Assembly.
Overall, it was a memorable experience to learn about the past and present Inuit culture and to enjoy their hospitality.
