Nunavut Travel Guide

Nunavut — Travel Tips

  • Nunavut natives prefer to be called Inuit rather than Eskimos, as the latter is considered a racist term in Canada
  • Warm clothing is strongly recommended even in the middle of Nunavut’s brief summers, when temperatures can still be cooler than average
  • Airplane prices will eat up a large portion of your travel budget in this region as distances are vast and flying is usually the only available means of transportation
  • Food and other necessities are far more expensive in Nunavut than in southern Canada because the goods must be imported long distances by airplane
