Tuktut Nogait National Park is named after the Bluenose West caribou that are born here when the migratory herd returns to its calving grounds each spring. Other wildlife viewing includes native muskox, arctic wolves, grizzlies and the elusive wolverine. Wildflowers blanket the tundra, best viewed while backpacking or on day hikes during paddling expeditions on Class I to Class III tributaries.
Paddle the Great (Largely Unknown) Hornaday River
Paddle the Hornaday River as it flows through Tuktut Nogait National Park to the Arctic Ocean. This 8-12 day excursion transects the tundra and splits red canyon walls 170 m tall.
Backpack the Brock River and Hornaday Canyons
Few people expect to see the bright green rolling tundra drop dramatically to 170-metre deep amber and red canyons in the Arctic. With your world on your back head out on a multi-day hike into the spectacularly wild Brock and Hornaday canyons of Tuktut Nogait National Park.
