Baffin Island is home to much wildlife including harp seals, walrus, barren-ground caribou, polar bear, arctic fox, arctic hare, lemming and arctic wolf; as well as many species of migrating birds.

Baffin Island also a hot spot for BASE jumping thanks to it's wide array of cliffs. It also welcomes visitors for skiing, kayaking, mountain climbing and more.

Sounds like a fantastic spot - who's been there??
