The Itijjagiaq Trail starts at Frobisher Bay and crosses the rolling hills of the Meta Incognita peninsula through Katannilik Terrirotial Park. Trails are not marked but there is a suggested route to follow.
Difficult route only to be completed by experienced hikers -stream crossings, very isolated, no trail markers, etc -
However, scenery, isolation (we were told that we were the first hikers to traverse the entire trail in at least 4 years and probably closer to 7 years) and wildlife (wolves, caribou, fox, etc) make it well worth the effort.
From Iqaluit, hire an outfitter to transport you across Frobisher Bay (1 hr boat ride) to the trail head.
