Baker Lake Nunavut

Baker Lake Nunavut

Also known as: Qamani’tuaq, “where the river widens.”

When you stand in the middle of Baker Lake you are at the geographical center of Canada. Baker Lake is surrounded by hundreds of kilometers of tundra. Many rivers flow into Baker Lake including the Thelon and the Kazan which have been designated Canadian Heritage Rivers. These rivers are premier areas for canoeists from around the world to
experience the challenge of paddling through the incredible vastness and beauty of the Arctic.

Baker Lake’s Inuit Heritage Centre and the Community Igloo are not to be missed. Interact with the knowledge of the Elders and learn about life in the Arctic from those who know it best.
