Prince of Wales Fort guided tours
Availability: July and August, dependent on weather
Follow wooden boardwalks across tundra ablaze with purple fireweed towards the remote, wind-swept stone ruins of an early 18th century Hudson’s Bay Company fur trade fortress. Old British cannon mounted atop the massive stone parapets point in all directions as they once did – across the land and sea where passing beluga whales stand out starkly white against a grey Hudson Bay.
Join a guided tour of the multi-level fortification where reconstruction and archaeological digs are ongoing projects. Visit the remains of the powder magazine, learning about the conflicts between the British and French. The eloquently carved signatures of historic people who passed through the rampart walls bring the stones to life, transporting you back to an exciting and adventurous time in Canada’s founding days.
