Nature and science

Auyuittuq National Park

Auyuittuq, Inuktitut for “Land that Never Melts”, has a dynamic landscape with craggy mountains, sheer granite cliffs, and glaciers that define Akshayuk Pass. Dramatic melt water streams and rivers thunder toward the fiords as intrepid travellers make their way through the pass.

Science and conservation

Conservation, research and monitoring are essential for protecting and understanding Auyuittuq’s species and ecosystems.


Auyuittuq’s mountainous terrain, long fiords, ice caps and glaciers represent the Northern Davis natural region of Canada.
