The Arctic is a land of icons

Polar bears. Reindeer. Treeless tundra, sprawling to infinity. High Arctic islands, reaching toward the pole. Beluga. Muskoxen. An ocean, frozen in place, gleaming in the nightless spring. It’s all here, along with the people who call it home – the Gwich’in and Inuvialuit, who’ve thrived here for eons along the mouth of the Mackenzie River and the flanks of the Northwest Passage.

Nestled on the side of Caribou Creek approxiumately 40 kilometres north of Tsiigehtchic on the Dempster Highway, Vadzaih Van Tshik Campground is well-protected from the elements by the steep cliffs nearby. Birds of prey glide high above, while kingfishers are occasionally seen skimming the water – and sometimes you'll see peregrine falcons nesting. This campground features washrooms, a picnic/day-use area, and a kitchen shelter.
