Climbing and mountaineering

Auyuittuq National Park

Auyuittuq’s glaciers, rock cliffs and mountains provide world-class opportunities for rock climbing, mountaineering and ski mountaineering in an arctic environment. There are many great bouldering areas in the park. Contact park staff for more information.

Potentially harsh conditions and a lack of local rescue services make mountaineering in this park inadvisable for all but the most experienced of climbers. Are you prepared for self-rescue? In emergency situations, technical rescue equipment and personnel have to be brought in from outside of Nunavut.

Please contact the park office well in advance of your trip to discuss expedition plans and secure approval for caches and base camps.
