The Arctic is a land of icons
Polar bears. Reindeer. Treeless tundra, sprawling to infinity. High Arctic islands, reaching toward the pole. Beluga. Muskoxen. An ocean, frozen in place, gleaming in the nightless spring. It’s all here, along with the people who call it home – the Gwich’in and Inuvialuit, who’ve thrived here for eons along the mouth of the Mackenzie River and the flanks of the Northwest Passage.
The End of the Road Inn has eight rooms with full shared kitchen and bathroom. Laundry services are available on site. Please contact us for rates and availability.
Enjoy the spectacular shoreline of Campbell Lake, try your luck fishing, hike in search of unique rocks and fossils, or hit the beach for a swim above the Arctic Circle. There are just a few of the options available at Gwich'in Territorial Campground, about 30 kilometres south of Inuvik on the Dempster Highway. The campground includes 15 non-powered campsites and four tent sites, washrooms, drinking water, a kitchen shelter and a boat launch.
Nestled on the side of Caribou Creek approxiumately 40 kilometres north of Tsiigehtchic on the Dempster Highway, Vadzaih Van Tshik Campground is well-protected from the elements by the steep cliffs nearby. Birds of prey glide high above, while kingfishers are occasionally seen skimming the water – and sometimes you'll see peregrine falcons nesting. This campground features washrooms, a picnic/day-use area, and a kitchen shelter.
