For the first time in history, a public road now leads to the Arctic coast of North America. The Inuvik-to-Tuktoyaktuk Highway opened to adventuresome travellers in late 2017. The brand-new all-weather road winds 140 kilometres through the boreal forest of the Mackenzie Delta and over the surreal Barrenlands, passing through a wild realm of reindeer, belugas, bears and more. At the end you'll come to culturally rich Tuktoyaktuk and the legendary polar sea.
