Pond Inlet is located on the northeastern shore of Baffin Island, across from Bylot Island. It is known to the Inuit as Mittimatalik, “the place where Mittima is buried”. Although the name remains, the identity of Mittima is a mystery to the present-day people of Pond Inlet. Pond Inlet is one of Nunavut’s treasure troves. The gorgeous scenery is a mix of mountains, glaciers, and icebergs that attract many tourists from all over the world. There are many outfitters for hire that will readily take visitors out on dogsled or snowmobile to see the abundant wildlife and scenery that Pond Inlet has to offer. (~Government of Nunavut)
