Delta Ice Roads

Delta Ice Roads

From January to April, ice roads connect Aklavik and Tuktoyaktuk to Inuvik, Northwest Territories. Visitors can rent a vehicle and drive the winding river and stream route to Aklavik. For a wildly different sense of place, it is still possible to drive on the Mackenzie River Delta and the Beaufort Sea to Tuktoyaktuk. However, a new all-season road is under construction from Inuvik to Tuktoyatuk, and this long river and sea route will eventually become just a memory. Speed limits on the ice roads are enforced for your safety - dangerous holes can open in the road if speeding traffic creates waves under the ice.
