From a very young age, Ted Irniq  has learnt to travel great distances on the land with his father. By the time he reached five years old, he had taken part in hunting trips and visits to other communities by snowmobile and boat.  As he grew up into his teenage years, he went across the Kivalliq to Kitikmeot with his father and other family members from these two regions of Nunavut, Canada.

His passion for boating is such that he took the lead to drive his boat from Churchill, MB, all the way to Iqaluit, NU.  A three-week adventure through Hudson Bay to Arviat, Rankin Inlet, Coral Harbour, Cape Dorset, Kimmirut and Iqaluit.

As Ted has always been passionate about the land, he enjoys hunting and boating.  He loves spending time exploring the road less travelled every chance he gets.  Graduated from the Environmental Technology Program from Nunavut Arctic College, he is now a renowned guide that has led several successful Polar Bear, Walrus and short game hunting trips, both by land and sea.  In recent years, Ted has travelled to the tip of Ellesmere Island and Antarctica.  He also led a snowmobile expedition from Iqaluit to Rankin Inlet in 2016, testing his technological and traditional skills on a 3000 km journey.  Many expedition companies seek his expertise as a land and marine guide.
