History lovers will love Naujaat. Travel back in time to the doomed Franklin expedition, by learning about one of the most famed rescue missions, which came through Naujaat. Here, John Rae built a stonehouse, which he quickly abandoned for the warmth and comfort of the igloo–an ingenious Inuit innovation. Later, Rae would learn the sad fate of the Franklin expedition when a group of Inuit relayed horrible tales of the crew’s last days, which included instances of cannibalism.
Travellers can also visit Thule sites near Naujaat and marvel at relics and artifacts that go back thousands of years. Or stop in at Harbour Islands for a tour of abandoned whaling stations.
