Memories Await Under the Midnight Sun - Ivvavik Base Camp

Ivvavik Base Camp, located in the far northeast corner of the Yukon, is a remote Arctic paradise that has everything needed to feel comfortable.

Guests can choose to book a fully guided 5-day or 9-day catered trip, with the option to add a visit to Herschel Island.

The Trip:

Guests will experience the Arctic in style as they settle into camp with Parks Canada guides. You will have your own prospector tent, flush toilets, electronic plug-ins, and even hot showers. Each day, enjoy fully catered meals prepared by Inuvialuit cooks.

Travelling alongside Cultural Hosts, you will learn about the rich culture of the Inuvialuit people. Listen to their stories as you walk with them, in the same footsteps as their ancestors. Participate in programs that teach you about their traditional way of life. Feel the history and strength of the people who once traveled these lands.

With guided hikes everyday, you will see the vast beauty that the Arctic has to offer. Looking in the distance, the mountains seem to expand forever.

Listen to the thundering rush of the Firth River, and lose yourself in its clear blue waters. Bring your fishing rod to catch your very own Arctic char for supper.

Don’t forget to pack your binoculars to watch for wildlife. You might see grizzly bears, wolves, caribou, squirrels, eagles, and Dall sheep. Notice the Arctic wildflowers giving colour through a land that is untouched by glaciers. This place is a home, full of life.

Whether you are looking for peace and quiet, or excitement and adventure, Ivvavik National Park has it all. Soak in a beauty unlike any other, as you experience an area few people in the world will ever get to see.
