  • [Iqaluit, Capital of Nunavut, Canada]

  • [Temperatures dip below -25ºF/-32ºC]

  • With a long dark season and 24-hour sunlight in the summertime​, it requires a unique individual to be able to survive the Arctic.

  • My name is Chris Kalluk.

  • I am from Nunavut.

  • I wanted to invite people to the Arctic.

  • I want people to know we exist up here.

  • And I wanted to be able to show people down south what it is like up here.

  • Iqaluit was captured with the Google tracker.

  • We hiked the whole city of Iqaluit in the span of four days.

  • With the tracker you are able to follow trails, you can hop on a snow mobile, or a quad or even on a dog team.

  • Traditionally, people used to rely completely on dog sleds.

  • There's still a handful of people that go out hunting by dog sled, but that's more for fun nowadays.

  • The world needs to see unique places.

  • And Canada's Arctic is most definitely a unique place.

  • Every community is not accessible by road.

  • You have to fly in and out, and nobody just passes through.

  • It feels good knowing that people all over the world can finally see Canada's Arctic as just amazing.

  • [Hello Iqaluit.]

  • [Hello world.]
