Authentic arctic villages offers new three-day experience

Okpik Arctic Village by Tundra North Tours, based in Canada’s Northwest Territories, has introduced a new three-day Okpik Arctic summer package.

Located 16 kilometres North of Inuvik, the authentic Arctic village can be reached exclusively by boat on the Mackenzie River in summer and by ice road in winter.

During the Okpik Arctic summer package, guests can experience Indigenous culture and learn about local manufacturing and food production. They have the opportunity to experience hands-on, what it’s like living on the land, mixing traditional knowledge with modern science.

A local guide will take them on a hike along the trapline, where they can experience the surroundings of the Mackenzie River Delta while learning about hunting and trapping in the Arctic.

A boat tour will include checking fish nets for the catch of the day and foraging on the tundra for traditional summer food, such as plants and berries. Guests can connect with nature by taking part in activities such as storytelling by local Elders or hide tanning. 

Accommodation is in traditional lodgings such as a tipi, wall tent, sod house or cabin.

Tundra North Tours is an Inuit company based in Inuvik, Northwest Territories, Canada. Their mission is to provide visitors from all over the world with an authentic experience of the atmosphere and culture of their home in Canada’s North.
