Inns North Canadian Arctic Hotels

Harsh Arctic conditions can only support a few varieties of plants, but the ones that do survive are true marvels of adaptability. These hardy plants must be able to withstand biting cold, long periods without light and the ravages of man and beast. That they survive at all is simply a wonder.

Plants in the Arctic know how to protect themselves. With soil just a few centimetres deep, they spread out wide and far. You will rarely see bare soil on the tundra. It is generally either covered with snow or covered with plant life.

The tundra meadow and mountainside replaces the bleak white of snow with a blaze of colour in spring. From the yellow of cinquefoils and dandelions to the purple of saxifrage, and from the light creamy tint of mountain avens to the reddish-brown tinge of wintergreen, the contrast in colour can be dazzling.

As Nunavut occupies an area mostly above the tree line, trees are a precious rarity. You will only encounter them in a few places here, so you seldom have to worry about tree branches obscuring the magnificent view.
