ABOUT THIS REGION  WILDERNESS RIVER RAFT TRIPS

Soper River raft trip expedition on Baffin Island

Join our guide for this arctic odyssey and sample the best and most exotic of Baffin Island on the rafting expedition on the Soper River. The Soper is a Canadian Heritage River. Kuujuak, “The Great River“ as it is know to the Inuit, flows through Katannilik Park, across the tundra to Lake Harbour (Kimmirut) on the Arctic Ocean. Steeped in history and rich in flora and fauna, it is a treasure of Nunavut, Canada’s newest Territory. The communities of Iqaluit, Kimmirut and Pangirtung, offer an opportunity to experience the unique culture of this land. The itinerary is planned to make the most of your time in Baffin, for cultural, ecological and historical exploration.

You will float, paddle and hike the Soper River and surrounding landscape with a collection of rafts and canoes. The timing coincides with the height of the wildflower colour. Hiking opportunities abound on the open tundra. The clear stream with small gorges and Class I & II rapids makes for idyllic river travel. Falcons, caribou, muskox, fox, wolf, ptarmigan, geese and others, animate the landscape.
