Welcome to Pangnirtung!

Pangnirtung, or Pang as locals call it, is located on Baffin Island in the Cumberland Peninsula. It is a small community bordered by snowcapped mountains on one side and the ocean on the other. Located just outside of the Arctic Circle, Pangnirtung is one of Nunavut's communities to witness the midnight sun phenonmenon, when—for about a month starting near the beginning of June—the sun does not fully set, giving way to 24 hours of sunshine. The desire to experience this natural marvel draws tourists to this small community year after year. Sharing the land with arctic animals such as caribou, polar bears and seals, wildlife viewing opportunities for visitors abound. Because of its proximity to Auyuittuq National Park, the town is also a pit stop for those headed to the land that never melts. Other activities that visitors enjoy include hiking, camping, skidooing, cross country skiing, and snowmobiling. For the treasure collector, the town is a great place for shopping for one-of-a-kind aboriginal arts and crafts including handmade carvings, paintings, and weavings. A visitor's centre is also located in Pangnirtung to help guests plan activities as well as educate about the community's culture.
