The Adventure Map®

Published by Chrismar Mapping Services, 2005.
| One of the world's greatest long distance
backpacking trips takes place through a glacier-lined valley on Baffin Island.
The Akshayuk Pass, formerly known as Pangnirtung Pass, is an extraordinary 100
km trek through a land recently vacated by glaciers - though they line the
edges of the valley and send fingers of ice creeping into it. Mountains over
2000 metres high line a route through the finest scenery in North America.
This 1:65,000 scale with 25m contours topographic map covers the Pass from end to end plus points of interest, emergency facilities, glaciers with amount of recession, glacial streams, moraines, suggested route and extraordinary vegetation and landscape detail.
Also included is a smaller map of the two towns associated with the route, as well as showing emergency facilities, glaciers, glacial streams, moraines, colour photos and text detailing the natural and human history of the area along with vital safety tips and contact information.
The Adventure Map® is specifically designed for outdoor adventurers such as hikers, backpackers, and paddling enthusiasts who need an accurate, up-to-date, rugged map to get them into and safely back from the wilderness.
The Adventure Map® is compact (most measure 18" x 24"/45 x 61cm or less), easy to read, and easy to fold. The maps are also waterproof, printed on specially-made, extra tough, waterproof plastic.
