About Kugaaruk
Alternate Name: Arviliqjuat
Local Meaning: Lots of Bowhead Whales


This community is found on the Simpson Peninsula, and has been known for generations for its excellent seal hunting grounds. Surrounded by rugged scenery, Kugaaruk has long been occupied by the Netsiligmiut-- the people of the seal.

Sea kayaking expeditions led by local Inuit guides who accompany adventurers in the clear blue waters along the Boothia coast. History and nature come alive as the guides share their special knowledge of the land with you. The waters are alive with marine animals such as Bowhead whales, narwhals, and walrus and, of course, seals. The rocky coastline offers up glimpses of falcons, caribou, and polar bear. This adventure is open to novice and beginner paddlers for the first tour date in July, after the first trip it is best suited to experienced wilderness paddlers for the rest of the dates in August.

Abundant opportunity for hiking at Kugaaruk - see an Inukshuk, the oil drum cross left by missionaries, photograph arctic animals in their natural habitat, visit historic campsites where ancient Inuit hunted and fished.
