Quttinirpaaq National Park

Quttinirpaaq lies within the area of compass unreliability. GPS receivers are your best bet for navigation. Keep in mind that you should keep batteries warm and even the best unit can fail. Bring a backup unit, extra batteries and the right maps. Since Arctic weather can change rapidly, there may be times you are required to navigate in reduced or zero visibility conditions. In these conditions, you may need to re-evaluate if it is safe to travel.
