To experience The Pingo Canadian Landmark, you need to drive 130 km north of Inuvik on the Inuvik Tuktoyaktuk Highway. Along your drive, the landscape is open expanses of tundra, lakes, and trees. Halfway, you will notice the trees begin to thin and eventually disappear; you have crossed the tree line. As you draw nearer, you’ll observe small hills -- pingos -- protruding from the flat landscape. The hamlet of Tuktoyaktuk, nestled on the edge of the Arctic Ocean, can be seen in the distance. You have arrived.

Park your car at the Day-Use Area and have a picnic. Take in the stunning views of the pingos across the water in the distance. However, the pingos are only accessible by water so if you want to see them up close, you need a boat.
