Inukjuak is a northern village located on Hudson Bay at the mouth of the Innuksuak River in Nunavik, in the Nord-du-Québec region of northern Quebec.
Nunavik... mere words can't begin to describe it: the endless silence of the tundra, the thundering hooves of immense caribou herds, the dancing northern lights, the pack ice drifting by...
For the past 4,000 years, Nunavik has been inhabited by people whose ancestors travelled from Asia via the Bering Strait. Still nomads, the Inuit gradually began to settle barely two generations ago. Nunavik's some 10,700 inhabitants—for the most part Inuit—live in 14 villages located mainly on the coast, at the mouths of rivers. For more information go to Bonjour Quebec

Nunavik is home to extraordinary natural attractions. You'll see an unusual indent in the earth 88 km (55 mi.) from Kangiqsujuaq: the Pingualuit Crater, recently made a national park.
