Canadian Arctic Reindeer

A vast herd of 3,000 reindeer moves slowly, like a living river, across the stark, snowy tundra. Follow in their footsteps as they travel towards their spring calving grounds. See shimmering northern lights shoot across the horizon as you head for the night into an igloo you helped build. Mush your own dog team, smoke fish and share a feast cooked by Inuvik elders while chatting with them about traditional life. Take part in old-time games, dances and songs and feel the connection these people have with the Arctic’s creatures and wide-open spaces. For over a decade, Kylik Kisoun Taylor of Tundra North Tours has been introducing visitors to the spectacular North. An Inuvialuit/Gwich’in from Inuvik whose grandparents lived a traditional lifestyle, Kylik is passionate about sharing insights about his world. “People come here seeking to connect with untouched wilderness and experience other cultures,” he says. “They leave transformed.”
