The wild and rugged region called Nunavut is Canada's newest territory, formed in 1999. Meaning "our land" in Inuktitut, the Inuit language, Nunavut offers an unspoiled Arctic landscape that is rich with wildlife and stunning scenery.
Although "romantic getaway" might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word "Arctic", couples that enjoy the outdoors will find Nunavut to be a true natural paradise. Take a dog-sled ride, cross-country ski, or snowmobile... or try something new and sign up for a cultural trip that includes sleeping in an iglu! In the summer you can canoe or kayak, hike, bike, or spend the day fishing. Bird-watching is superb and photographic opportunities abound.

Other unique experiences include the "midnight sun" in June (24-hour sunshine), as well as 24-hour darkness in the winter months for adventurous couples who are willing to travel to the northern community of Grise Fiord on Ellesmere Island. And be sure to catch the display of Northern Lights if you can - it's an unforgettable experience for those lucky enough to see it!
The friendly people, Inuit culture, and starkly beautiful landscape make a visit to Nunavut a trip like no other. Take an adventure and experience the romance of the true north!
