Pingo Canadian Landmark

Pingo Canadian Landmark

Pingo Canadian Landmark protects a unique arctic landform: ice-cored hills called pingos. Pingo Canadian Landmark features eight of the 1350 pingos found in the region including Ibyuk Pingo, Canada's highest. For centuries, pingos have acted as navigational aides for Inuvialuit travelling by land and water and as a convenient height of land for spotting caribou on the tundra or whales offshore.
