K’áhbamítúé – “Ptarmigan net place”
Fifty kilometres north of the Arctic Circle, this traditional log-cabin settlement nestles between rolling black spruce forest and the gleaming waters of its namesake lake. It dates from 1962, when the region’s Hareskin Dene began to settle around the new Our Lady of the Snows mission. Today visitors can check out the mission and the small museum/gallery, and fish for trout, grayling and pike. Access is by air and, in winter, by ice-road.
