“Mouth of the iron river”
Stationed atop a commanding bluff at the confluence of the Mackenzie and Arctic Red Rivers, this tiny Gwich’in town is steeped in traditional fishing, hunting and trapping. It’s a worthwhile stop for Dempster Highway travellers, who can stroll the riverbanks, stop in at the new visitor centre, and check out the picturesque, 80-year-old church. Access across the river is via ferry in summer and ice road in winter.
