Monthly Climate Averages for Cambridge Bay Victoria Island Canada

 

Sightseeing:

Cambridge Bay (Ikaluktutiak) lies on the south coast of Victoria Island and is the site of a weather station. This is the administrative center for the western Kitikmeot Region and a historically important town. Lying in the harbor are the weathered remains of the 'Maud' - the three-masted schooner that Amundsen sailed across the north polar basin from 1922-24. The area was a traditional hunting and fishing location and archeological sites are often found. Barren-ground Caribou, Muskox, Arctic char, Lake trout and Ringed Seal were the primary and remain important food sources today. Situated east of Cambridge Bay is Ovayok Territorial Park.
