Our Community of the Month for November is Kugaaruk in Nunavut. Home to famous Inuit artists, Kugaaruk means “little stream” in Inuktitut. This beautiful community is also called ‘Arviligjuaq’ in Inuktitut, which means ‘place of many bowhead whales’ because it is situated near bowhead habitat. Nestled within coastal mountains, Kugaaruk is a great destination Kugaaruk for whale watching.
