Comfortable, Arctic base camp awaits

Photo: Colin Field

Keep your camera handy! You will need it while flying over the Mackenzie Delta and into the heart of the British Mountains during a scenic flight aboard a Twin Otter bush plane. Then settle into your comfortable furnished prospector tent surrounded by mountain wilderness.

This camp has Ivvavik National Park’s only flush toilet and hot shower west of civilization. Work up an appetite hiking unmarked routes to Inspiration Point beneath the midnight sun or Halfway to Heaven. Enjoy meals on the cookhouse’s screened-in deck, and spend time with your Inuvialuit host hearing stories and learning about the culture on their traditional land.
