Cambridge Bay (Ikaluktutiak) lies on the south coast of Victoria Island and is the site of a weather station. This is the administrative centre for the western Kitikmeot Region and a historically important town. Lying in the harbour are the weathered remains of the 'Maud' - the three-masted schooner that Amundsen sailed across the north polar basin from 1922-24. The area was a traditional hunting and fishing location and archeological sites are often found. Barren-ground Caribou, Muskox, Arctic char, Lake trout and Ringed Seal were the primary and remain important food sources today. Situated east of Cambridge Bay is Ovayok Territorial Park.
Discovered in 1838 by Thomas Simpson, the island was named after Queen Victoria.
