    You’ll arrive at the Inuvik airport where your guides will greet you and take you to one of our boats to load up your luggage and head out on the East Channel of the Mackenzie River. After a boat ride filled with scenery, photo opportunities and local knowledge from your Inuvialuit guide, you will arrive at your first camp at Sandy Hills. Here you can hike up to the Tundra, just north of the tree line, and get a vast view of the Mackenzie Delta. This view shows where you’ll snake your way through the next day to get to the Arctic Ocean.

    Enjoy a campfire with great food, storytelling, and conversation before retiring into your wall tents for the night.
