“Barrenground grizzly place”
This Gwich’in/Inuvialuit town rests on the western flank of the Mackenzie Delta, near to the Richardson Mountains. Once the region’s administrative centre, locals were slated to be moved to Inuvik, but refused – hence their motto, “Never say die.” Don’t miss the grave of the Mad Trapper, the mysterious backwoods killer who led Mounties on one of Canada’s greatest manhunts. Access is by air or water or, in winter, via the ice road from Inuvik.
