The community of Kimmirut, previously known as Lake Harbour, is a picturesque town located on the southern coast of Baffin Island, near the mouth of the Soper River. Hikers access the Katannilik Territorial Park Reserve from just outside the community. Other outdoor pursuits enjoyed in the area are sea kayaking, canoeing, and hunting.

Kimmirut has a lot to offer its visitors; residents are continuing to
promote their community’s tourism industry from both within and
outside the territory. Such efforts have resulted in cruise ship stops, guide and outfitting services and a community website. Many of Kimmirut’s residents are renowned carvers whose art is sold and collected worldwide.
