The community of Kimmirut, previously known as Lake Harbour, is a picturesque town of just under 500 inhabitants located on the southern coast of Baffin Island, near the mouth of the Soper River. Hikers access the Katannilik Territorial Park Reserve from just outside the community. Other outdoor pursuits enjoyed in the area are sea kayaking, canoeing, and hunting.

Many of Kimmirut’s residents are renowned carvers whose art is sold and collected worldwide. For more information about Kimmirut and its surrounding attractions, visit
