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.
Wake up and enjoy a breakfast made by a personal cook and breathe in the fresh air! Get ready to venture to the Arctic Ocean as we journey through the Mackenzie Delta channels. Arriving on the Arctic Ocean, and finally Herschel Island, you will have time to explore the wonders of the island, try local cuisine, or just read a book under the midnight sun along the Arctic Coast.
Another epic adventure begins, this day is yours to explore Herschel Island and discover the awe-inspiring wonders this area has to offer.
Enjoy a hearty breakfast, then set out on your first half of the day, hiking in the prestigious park with your local park ranger(s), learning about the important heritage and history here. You’ll also hear stories from Herschel Island that have been passed down for generations, adding to the rich local culture.
The second half of the day is also adventure-filled, with fishing in the Arctic Ocean for Arctic Char! Or help set a net to catch your dinner.
After your adventurous, discovery-filled day hiking and fishing, you will return to camp for a relaxing evening under the Midnight Sun in the Arctic Circle.
Free day to explore with your guide, fish, or hike.
Enjoy your breakfast, then pack up and depart back to Inuvik by boat.
