The landscape and wildlife of the 18,890 sq km national park is seen by those privileged few willing to travel 170 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle. The landscape features rolling hills, three major rivers, steep canyons, waterfalls, rare Bluenose west caribou and the continent’s fiercest predators. One of the last places in North America to be explored by Europeans, this territory is best explored from “Basecamp”-guided backpacking trips that include a visit from Inuvialuit Cultural Hosts.
