The deep canyons, white water and tundra wildlife would draw hoards of tourists if Tuktut Nogait National Park were located closer to the masses. Instead, those fortunate few who travel to this diverse 18,890 sq km calving ground of the rare Bluenose West caribou discover an unspoiled landscape of rolling tundra transected by some of the last North American rivers to be discovered by Europeans.
This is remote land, located 170 km north of the Arctic Circle, and provides habitat for our continent’s fiercest and most elusive predators such as arctic wolves, grizzlies and wolverines. Gyrfalcons and peregrine falcons nest in large numbers among the spires and canyons within the mythical Hornaday and Brock River Canyons.
Over 400 archaeological sites have been discovered across the park, indicating 1,500 years of Inuit habitation. The Inuvialuit continue to practice traditional harvesting and are also active as interpretive guides within the park today.
