The Barren Grounds are a large area of tundra located in mainland Nunavut and stretching into the Northwest Territories in northern Canada. The Barren Grounds are nearly uninhabited, with the exception of a few coastal villages and towns in Nunavut and Baker Lake. The area's remoteness and wildlife bring in small numbers of tourists, mainly for fishing, canoeing, and wilderness camping.

Geography[edit]

The Barren Grounds are tundra, and lakes are abundant. The land in the area is mostly flat, although there are some hills in certain areas.
