Cambridge Bay's traditional name, Iqaluktuttiaq, translates to "good fishing place" which aptly illustrates the abundance of wildlife and outdoor activities that make the small town a popular tourist destination.


Nature-loving visitors can enjoy fly fishing in the Ekalluk River or an invigorating hike through Ovayok Territorial Park, as well as hunting, cross-country skiing and a host of other past-times. Add to that the ease at which one can view the enchanting, natural phenomenon of the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis, it's easy to see why Cambridge Bay should be on your bucket list.
