“Flowing water”

Population: 514

This culturally vibrant community is home to the only residents of vast Great Bear Lake, legendary for big fish and pure waters. The town also claims fame as the birthplace of ice hockey: the first documented game was said to have been played by Sir John Franklin's men when they overwintered here in the 1820s. Today, local guides will take you fishing and teach you about the area’s rich traditions and environment. Access is by air and, in winter, by ice road.
