Situated on the SE coast of Victoria Island - part of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago - Cambridge Bay is the largest stop for passenger and research vessels traversing the Arctic Ocean’s Northwest Passage. It lies 392km north of the Arctic Circle. Since 2009 the Northwest Passage has been ice free and Cambridge Bay is on the southernmost route for shipping between the Pacific and Atlantic. The area is the location of traditional hunting and fishing. Archaeological sites, such as the remains of a nearby Dorset (Paleo-Eskimo) culture stone-longhouse, and food caches of the Thule people, are often found. The Ekalluk River, 55km to the NW, is an important commercial fishing and archaeological area.

Cambridge Bay was the site of Royal Canadian Mounted Police and Hudson's Bay Company outposts during the 1920s, and the Inuit were itinerant. It is now the site of Canada's new High Arctic Research Station, opening in 2017; a year-round, multi-disciplinary facility to study Arctic science and technology issues. It is also the site of the impressive Loran Tower, a 189 m tall free-standing lattice tower built near the previous location of Cambridge Bay in 1947. Its purpose was to support ship and air navigation in the Pacific and Atlantic. The construction of the tower involved hiring Inuit workers who, after the tower was complete, remained in the area.

Cambridge Bay is home to part of the North Warning System, a joint United States and Canadian early-warning radar system for the air defence of North America. Arctic explorer, Roald Amundsen had his ship Maud stuck there in winter ice, and its sunken remains are still visible – that is, unless it has been raised and returned to Norway during the summer of 2017, to be displayed at a museum in Vollen. There’s a Roman Catholic Church constructed in 1954 with the use of seal oil and sand as mortar. You won’t find cars in town, but look up Google Street View to see how the town is laid out.
