You will get picked up at your hotel at 9:00AM. From there you will start your trip down the brand new Mackenzie Valley Highway. After driving for about one hour and a half, you will reach your drop off point. From here you will be assigned a snowmobile and safety equipment, and a quick lesson on snowmobiling techniques and safety. Once completed you will depart into the Arctic Tundra with your local guide until you reach the 3000+ Mackenzie Reindeer herd. Once there you will have warm drinks and gaze upon the mass amount of reindeer grazing in the frozen tundra. Perfect for photos, you will have about 2-3 hours to experience the reindeer before departing back to the highway by snowmobile, and back to Inuvik.
Meals Provided: Snacks and Light Lunch
