Our city provides many exciting social and cultural experiences for visitors. Whether you want to have tea with elders, get out with a dog team, go snowmobiling, dance under the Alianait! Big Top, or visit with friends and family, Iqaluit has a lot to offer. Our city is a great place to stopover, vacation or choose for your next meeting or conference. We have Nunavut’s largest selection of hotels, B&Bs, restaurants and stores. Residents and visitors alike can enjoy fine dining in our local resturants, including meals that feature Nunavut animals, such as muskox burgers, caribou steaks and pan-seared Arctic char.
In addition to our regularly scheduled recreation programs, Iqaluit is also a great place for fishing and hiking – either around town or at the Sylvia Grinnell Territorial Park. If you're up for an adventure, we have many outfitters that can arrange for you to go boating, snowmobiling, kite skiing, hunting, dog sledding or even river raft trips at the Katannilik Park situated between Iqaluit and Kimmirut.
Reveling in Iqaluit's culture will be a highlight of any trip. Visit Nunatta Sunakkutaangit Museum, Unikkaarvik Visitor Centre, or take a boat trip to the local heritage site of Qaummaarvik Park just minutes away from the community. Inuit carvings along with local handicrafts may be purchased in a number of stores or directly from the artisan or their family members who may approach you at restaurants.
There are endless opportunities for everyone in Iqaluit. We invite all to enjoy the mixture of small town hospitality and city amenities that make Iqaluit a great place to visit and an even better place to live!
