An epic experience with towering mountains, fierce winds, and cold temperatures. For people who are comfortable winter camping off the grid, this is an awesome destination that you will not soon forget. Thanks to the Park staff in Pangnirtung who answered all of our questions.

Chose Peter Kilabuk as a guide. He is very reliable and we had a unique experience scallop dragging. He was on time to pick us up after a long day in the Pass... The people at the Park office are great and very helpful.

This place is utterly beautiful - it was extreme weather when we were camping, as low as -30 with wind chill, so be prepared! Best thing I have done!

I don't know how to describe how wonderful this place was. It was totally worth visiting with my teenage children. Thank you for supplying an attraction that keeps them busy.
