Apex

Area in Iqaluit

Five kilometers from downtown, Apex is now Iqaluit's beach suburb, but was where nomadic Inuit began to settle when modern Iqaluit was an airbase. On the shore is the photogenic Hudson Bay Trading Post complex. It's a beautiful 30-minute walk along the waterfront from downtown; the trail starts at the cemetery. At low tide continue past Apex to explore Tarr Inlet.
