Frontiers North Presented with Award of Excellence by Nunavut Tourism
IQALUIT, NU, Oct. 24 – Frontiers North Adventures has been honoured with an Award of Excellence by Nunavut Toursim. The award, which is given to a Nunavut Tourism member based in or outside of the territory, was presented at Nunavut Tourism’s 2007 Annual General Meeting held in Iqualuit on October 20.
The Award of Excellence is rewarded to an operator that invests in tourism within Nunavut and incorporates sustainable development practices in their operation through market and export-ready business initiatives, and who invests and establishes concrete business relationships within the territory in order to provide successful products within the region. “For 20 years Frontiers North has worked hard to be recognized as the top adventure travel provider in Canada’s North,” said John Gunter, General Manager for Frontiers North Adventures. “We are extremely proud to be honoured by Nunavut Tourism with this award.”
Frontiers North Adventures currently offers two Authentic Arctic Adventures to Nunavut: walrus and bowhead whale photography tours in Igloolik and lodge-based wilderness tours at Elu Inlet Lodge.
