Akpatok Island is a fascinating place that very few – even Canadians – know about or will ever have the pleasure of visiting, largely because it’s so remote and completely uninhabited. No one has lived here for more than 100 years. Akpatok is located in Ungava Bay in Quebec’s far north. It’s the largest island in Ungava Bay, separated from Baffin Island by Hudson Strait. Although Quebec’s mainland is only about 70 kilometers away (a comparatively short distance), Akpatok Island is actually part of the territory of Nunavut, specifically the Qikiqtaaluk (Baffin) Region.
