There is so much to do in this nature-lovers paradise. You can whale watch from land or sea as pods of belugas play in the rivers running into the bay. Spot polar bears as they prowl the shore waiting for winter ice to form. Visit caribou calving grounds and huge bird sanctuaries. Everywhere you go the fishing is spectacular. You can hike for hundreds of kilometres along rivers unchanged since the ice age.
If this is your first tundra experience, you’ll be amazed at the ocean of rolling hills that seemingly never end. Mark your adventure by building your own inukshuk. It’s a little more work than you might think. However, this monument to your Kivalliq visit could very well last until the next ice age.
Many legends are connected with this strange and beautiful island of white stone not far from Rankin Inlet. For Inuit, the island has strong spiritual associations.
