Auyuittuq means 'the land that never melts' in Inuit. But, in summer, the deep and narrow Aksayook Pass provides an ice-free corridor through the magnificent Baffin Island terrain. The pass is an ancient route, and stone cairns, called inukshuks, mark the trail. Dizzying mountain peaks and active glaciers dominate the scenery.
