Top things to see and do in Iqaluit
Pronounced “ee-ha-loo-eet”, Iqaluit is one of the coldest capital cities in Canada with only three months every year without snow. Rug up against the remote Arctic tundra and try dogsledding, kayaking, fishing or hop on board a snowmobile. In summer, the snow is replaced by stunning wildflowers and the people of Iqaluit celebrate their vibrant city life!
