Join us on a once in a lifetime journey into Canada’s majestic Northwest Territories and the hamlets of Inuvik, Reindeer Station, and Tuktoyaktuk. This land of intense beauty offers a final opportunity to travel the Ice Road (driving over the Mackenzie River and the Arctic Ocean) between Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk and be captivated by the stately Reindeer Herd as it will be the last time one can view their journey to this area. View the Northern Lights as you stand along side the Arctic Ocean; experience a night in an igloo; join the Inuvik People as they share a great feast, dancing, and old time games; hear their stories of life in the north from local elders; and mush your own dog team.
