Ivvavik National Park of Canada



Raft through slot canyons and mountain valleys on an expedition that takes you from the park’s interior all the way to the Arctic Ocean. Fly into a remote base camp for a multiday Arctic adventure, complete with fishing, hiking and catered meals in the land of the midnight sun. In Ivvavik National Park, untamed expanses of tundra and wildlife from grizzlies to caribou await travellers, high above the Arctic Circle.
