Western Arctic Regional Visitor Centre

If you’ve never visited the Western Arctic before then make sure to start your adventure with a quick stop at the Western Arctic Visitor Centre in Inuvik. It’s your one-stop shop for information related to visiting or travelling through this incredible region. 

Located on Mackenzie Road, just as you enter town from the Dempster Highway, the Visitor Centre contains a multitude of fascinating exhibits on local art, flora, fauna, and neighbouring communities. This is also where you can pick up your official Arctic Circle Adventurer Certificate. 

The Centre is open from June 1 to September 1 and hosts weekly events based around northern culture. Call 867-777-7237 (or 867-777-7353 during the off-season) or email travel_westernarctic@gov.nt.ca for more information.
