Pingo Canadian Landmark

Top choice hill in Tuktoyaktuk

The Tuk Peninsula has the world's highest concentration of pingos. Some 1350 of these huge mounds of earth-covered ice, that form only in a permafrost environment, dot the land. Two of these, nearest to Tuktoyaktuk, have been designated the Pingo Canadian Landmark. You get great views of the village from one of them.
