Tamaarvik Territorial Park (campground) plays a role in supporting tourism development in the growing community of Pond Inlet including the newly established Sirmilik National Park, one of the major tourist attractions in the Eastern Arctic. Visitors will see colourful wildflowers and examples of land patterned by permafrost along the coastal escarpment. Hiking opportunities are plentiful in Pond Inlet. Experienced backpackers can trek to the glaciers and mountains southeast of Pond Inlet in two to five days. Hikers can also cross Janes Creek (it is often impassable in July) and climb a trail up to the top of the 765-metre Mount Herodier, 15 kilometres east of town for a breathtaking view of the area.
