• Ovayuk Territorial Park

The Park is named after a 200 meter mountain, a distinctive feature of this flat coastal area. The subject of a legend about giants who starved on the land, Ovayuk has been a landmark for nomadic Inuit for many generations.  A guidebook to this territorial park is available at the Arctic Coast Visitor Centre, and describes some 20 km of trails, camping areas and interpretive signage. The mountain, plainly visible from Cambridge Bay on a clear day, is a four to six hour hike, or a 30 minute trip by car, from town. Muskoxen are often spotted along the winding road leading to the park.

  • The Old Stone Church

The stone church was built by the Oblate Missionaries in the early 1950s. The church, which was restored, offers a great vantage point for photography of the hamlet across the water.

  • Kitikmeot Foods Ltd.

Offers plant tours, and a range of prepackaged and frozen locally harvested Arctic char filets, lox and jerky, suitable for gifts. These products are also available across western Canada and in the US. Muskoxen are also harvested locally, and steaks and roasts may be available in season.

  • Traditional Camps and Cottages

Belonging to local residents dot the coastline near Cambridge Bay. Fish and meat drying racks can still be seen at some of these camps. Use courtesy, and respect these summer homes, and residents will often welcome visitors with warmth and hospitality.
