It has a flat terrain consisting of coastal marine features, pasture, fresh water inlets and ice-capped regions, and can thus be best travelled on foot for longer stretches. Coral Harbor is where you should be if you are looking for an Arctic wildlife, adventure sports, archaeological sites, some sightseeing in typical Tundra setup and a relatively unknown site of Second World War and Cold War- all at the same place. Visitors do take a liking for ecotourism here because of the sheer number of flora and fauna present here- including fish, walruses, polar bear, caribou, seals, falcons, geese and polar bears among others. For outdoor enthusiasts, there are multiple offerings in skiing, dog sledding and snowmobiling that can be best availed during October and June. With numerous dedicated trails here for hiking and mountain biking and ample opportunities to go fishing for the famous Arctic Char fish, there’s little you’d care to ask for.
