Qausuittuq National Park of Canada

Over 11,000 km2 of wilderness and wildlife to experience in Canada's western high Arctic

Be the first to review

The name Qausuittuq (pronounced Qow-soo-ee-tooq) means “place where the sun doesn’t rise” in Inuktitut, in reference to the fact that the sun at this latitude stays below the horizon for several months in the winter.

With a cluster of islands in a frozen sea, marshy wetlands, low level plateaus, and rich marine areas, Qausuittuq National Park has irreplaceable natural and cultural heritage. Despite a proximity to water, Qausuittuq National Park is a Polar Desert. Although it is one of the harshest and driest places in the world, a surprising number of wildlife have adapted to this particular environment, such as the endangered Peary caribou.
