Ukpik Peak is a mountain associated with the Baffin Mountains on Baffin Island, Nunavut, Canada.

Geography[edit]

Ukpik Peak is located at the southern end of the Remote Peninsula between the Stewart Valley and Sam Ford Fiord.[2]

Although it is the thirteenth-highest peak in Nunavut and the eighth-highest peak in the territory by topographic prominence,[1] Ukpik Peak is not as conspicuous as the spectacular Sail Peaks[3] rising 4.5 km (2.8 mi) to the northwest facing Stewart Valley.[3]
