Accessible only by air charter for a brief period each summer, the park, which has no developed trails and only one small service cabin, is best known for its arctic canoeing and kayaking. The gentle Thomsen River winds 160 kilometres through Aulavik, passing through a valley with abundant wildlife, from the iconic muskox to grizzlies, Arctic wolves and foxes and dozens of bird species. Hikers can set out on foot to explore the valley and surrounding ridges.
