Member Polar Pack Arctic Adventures

We are an Inuvialuit owned and operated family business, run by locals Enoch and Amanda Pokiak, based in Inuvik in the Western Arctic region. We offer boat tours on the Mackenzie River to the community of Tuktoyaktuk by the Arctic Ocean.

Other adventures we offer are boating tours of the pingos, the Canadian National Landmark, and day fishing tours, which are catch and release. 

If boating is not your style, join us in our truck for a driving tour on the Inuvik-Tuktoyaktuk Highway. The only road in Canada that leads to the Arctic Ocean! 

Please contact us for more information.
