The Hudson's Bay cabin

About 25 km from Pangnirtung lies an old Hudson's Bay cabin. At a beautiful location by a frozen blue water flow, this small structure fights the conditions. The wood is preserved by the cold and dry climate.

I don't really know the history of this cabin, but apparently it used to be owned by Hudson's Bay Company for fur trading purposes before Pangnirtung existed. That would probably mean it was built in the late 1800's. Later on, the Company built a store in Pang.

We visited the cabin one pretty weekend afternoon by skidoos.
