Sea ice near Clyde River or Kangiqtugaapik, Baffin Island, Canada

Year: 2013 Taken by: Peter Prokosch
Clyde River, which is Kangiqtugaapik, or “nice little inlet,” to the Inuit, can be found on the eastern shore of Baffin Island in the shelter of Patricia Bay. A town of just over 900 people, it is located on a flood plain, surrounded by spectacular fjords that stretch all the way into the Barnes Icecap. The mountains, icebergs and glaciers in the Clyde River area attract rock and ice climbers from around the world. There is also a multitude of animals to be seen, including caribou, narwhals and other sea mammals. The Iqalirtuuq National Wildlife Area, a protected bowhead whale sanctuary, is located in Patricia Bay.
