Arctic Bay, (population approx. 760) known to Inuit as Ikpiarjuk, “the pocket”, is surrounded on three sides by high hills. Located on northern Baffin Island, it is a great place to experience the sights of narwhals, walruses, seals & other sea mammals. Arctic Bay is connected to the nearby mining community of Nanisivik by a 32 kilometre road. Nanisivik was developed in the 1970's to support Breakwater Resources’ lead/zinc/silver mine, which is now in the last stages of closing.
