Guests during this multi-day trip stay in a furnished prospector tent at a comfortable base camp that has Ivvavik National Park’s only flush toilet and hot shower west of civilization. On catered trips, let Parks Canada guides take you along unmarked routes to Inspiration Point beneath the midnight sun or Halfway to Heaven. When you return to base camp, the cook will have supper ready for you in the cookhouse. Then kick back, relax and spend time with your Inuvialuit host learning about the culture on their traditional land.
Catered trips include return flights into the park, home-cooked meals, snacks, and guided hikes with Parks Canada staff. Guests can choose a 5-day or 9-day catered trip. Complete your catered adventure with a trip that includes a two-hour stop at Herschel Island - Qikiqtaruk Territorial Park on the Yukon’s Arctic coast, weather permitting. Join Yukon Parks rangers for a tour of this spell-binding land and its Inuvialuit and whaling history. Keep an eye out for a passing whale. Dip your toe (or more!) in the Arctic Ocean - we dare you! A 7-day independent trip to Ivvavik’s base camp that is self-catered and self-guided is also available.
A Parks Canada fishing licence can be purchased for those wanting to throw a line into the Firth River near the base camp.
