Tour the eskers. The Eskers actually run prominently thru Courageous lake then travels west of Courageous towards the Coppermine river. You will find the eskers to be breath-taking. These eskers have been used for centuries by the caribou and ancient hunters who followed them. You never know what you will find.

Northern Lights

Courageous lake is a absolutely perfect spot to relax and enjoy the Northern Lights. There is no light pollution, you can enjoy the show while enjoying a beverage and snacks.


At Courageous lake, Arctic wolves and wolverines are fairly common as they hunt the area around Courageous, this is the main travel migration corridor for the Bathurst caribou herd. Keep your eyes peeled for a beautiful Barren Ground grizzly bear. Because this is a dense area for caribou all the animals that survive off the caribou follow the herds. This provides opportunity to see these animals in the wild.


The 5 star trophy lake trout fishing at Courageous lake is incredible for lake trout and arctic grayling. While fishing wildlife viewing opportunities will present. It’s a great way to combine to great activities that get you out on the Barrenlands.
