Polar outfitting is owned and operated by Alexander Flaherty. Alex is a lifetime Nunavummiut and resident of the capital, Iqaluit. Growing up in Grise Fjord, Nunavut, Alex worked with hunters from the community learning traditional skills needed to hunt and survive in the Canadian North. He uses that knowledge and skills to share the beauty of Nunavut with visitors by leading guided trips and expeditions out on the land.
