Established with the dream of sharing our love of the Arctic and all it has to offer with visitors from around the world, join Tundra North, an Inuit company based in Inuvik, Northwest Territories for the experience of a lifetime. Hop on a snowmobile and follow a vast herd of 3,000 reindeer as they move slowly across the snowy tundra towards their spring calving grounds. See shimmering northern lights ripple across the horizon as you head for the night into the igloo you helped build this morning. Mush your own dog team, smoke fish and share a feast cooked by Inuvik elders while chatting about traditional life. Take part in old-time games, dances, and songs and feel a connection with the Arctic’s creatures and wide-open spaces.
