Owned and operated by the local Inuit, Elu Inlet Lodge is located on the beautiful shores of Elu Inlet, next to Mount Elu and the mouth of the Itibiak River. This region, rich in Inuit culture and history, is home to unique wildlife such as caribou, prehistoric-looking musk oxen and barren ground grizzly bears. The sense of awe and discovery of this unexplored and untouched wilderness is what makes this experience a nature enthusiast’s dream.
Primary activities include a cultural arts program where guests can meet with local artists as they share their interesting lives and explain the meaning of their unique native art forms; an Elu boat expedition circumnavigating islands in Elu Inlet in search of falcon and gull nesting grounds and musk oxen and other wildlife; interpretive guided hikes to explore magnificent vistas, breathtaking geological outcroppings and ancient Thule and Dorset archeological sites. Led by a seasoned nature photographer, this tour offers wonderful photography opportunities.
