Make yourself at home while you make a home with NARWAL Northern Adventures

NARWAL Northern Adventures is a family-run business, owned and operated by Cathy Allooloo and two of her children out of Yellowknife, Northwest Territories.

In all seasons, NARWAL brings guests out into the stunning NWT wilderness and teaches them all about outdoor survival, as well as Inuit customs and practices. In winter, learn to build an igloo—the ingenious snow homes that Inuit invented with the materials around them to thrive during the harshest winters on the planet. Cut and carve your own snow blocks, fit them together snugly and then crawl inside to experience the surprising comfort and warmth of a home made of snow.

In summer, rent a canoe, kayak or stand-up paddleboard and explore the wild worlds around Yellowknife. Take some paddle lessons with certified paddle instructor, and Juno award-winner, Tiffany Ayalik. Or sign up for outdoor survival course with skilled hunter and accomplished bushman, Devon Allooloo.

If you're seeking an exciting and educational outdoor experience in Yellowknife, look no further than NARWAL Northern Adventure, locally owned and family run since 1981.
