Clyde River is yet another scenic community in the North Baffin Region, nestled in the Baffin Mountains along the northeastern coast. Within 100 km of the hamlet lays the site of a world famous climbing area that attracts climbers from across the world. The coastline is viewed as so beautiful, that it has become a proposed territorial park.
Clyde River is an excellent hunting ground for local residents who partake in an annual polar bear hunt, and the abundance of fish and whales have drawn Inuit to the region for thousands of years.
