Iqaluit

The city of Iqaluit on Baffin Island is located on the northern end of Frobisher Bay near the mouth of the Sylvia Grinnell River. Formerly known as Frobisher Bay, this modern city of Iqaluit is rich with traditional Inuit culture. Home to many Inuit artists, filmmakers and musicians,  there are arts and culture festivals staged in the spring and summer, bringing artists from across the territory. 

The city enjoys nearly twenty-four hours of sunshine in late June and early July, with beautiful twilight skies for two hours around midnight. The shortest days of December have four hours of daylight, with the sun hovering on the southern horizon. The extraordinary dancing Northern Lights are seen from October to April. Winter temperatures of -10°C to -32°C are typical.
