Settled at the bottom of a mountain, at the mouth of a river and surrounded by spectacular fiords, Pangnirtung is located on Baffin Island, in Cumberland Sound. Known to outdoor enthusiasts as the gateway to the famous Auyuittuq National Park, there are many attractions for visitors to this community. Pangnirtung is famed for its art and one of the great attractions is the Uqqurmiut Inuit Arts Centre. The Artist Association of the Centre welcomes visitors to see to the print and weave shops, which create beautiful woven tapestries and prints. The acclaimed “Pang” hats, colorfully-patterned crocheted toques made by local craftspeople, can also be purchased at the Centre’s gift shop. Pangnirtung Fisheries contributes to the community’s economy through the harvesting and processing of arctic char and Baffin turbot (Greenland halibut). (~Government of Nunavut)
