Cape Dorset has been inhabited for over 1000 years, and was the location of a Hudson's Bay Company trading post in 1913. It is most known as the Inuit Art Capital of the World, and cruise ship passengers often stop here to purchase the unique Cape Dorset style of Inuit art for sale at the West Baffin Eskimo Cooperative.

Steep rocky hills overlook this picturesque spot, and if you camp on the beaches as many people choose to do, you may see caribou, arctic foxes, migrating sea birds, walruses, and whales right from your sleeping bag. Modern houses, as well as traditional homes can be found, often with snowmobiles and ATVs parked out front, alongside the fish drying on racks. Come to Cape Dorset and explore the art of the Inuit people from this unique perspective.
