Ovayok Territorial Park is named after a 200-meter mountain, a distinctive feature of this flat coastal area. The subject of a legend about giants who starved on the land, Ovayuk has been a landmark for nomadic Inuit for many generations.
The mountain, plainly visible from Cambridge Bay on a clear day, is a 30-minute trip by car. Muskoxen are often spotted along the winding road leading to the park.
Once you arrive at the park, be sure to climb up Mount Pelly – it will only take you about twenty-five minutes to get to the top.
