Health & safety
Polar bears aren’t just on Nunavut’s license plates. Nanuq (the Inuit name) is an inveterate wanderer and can turn up just about anywhere, any time of year. Worse, unlike grizzlies and black bears, they actively prey on people. Inquire about bear sightings before trudging out of town, or go with a shotgun-toting guide.
