Arctic immersion in Nunavik
Experience the traditions and culture of the Inuit in Quebec’s Far North
Fanned out before you, sled dogs lope across a glittering expanse of Arctic tundra under a seemingly endless vault of blue sky. As you glide over the snow, your eyes scan for wildlife — polar bears, perhaps, or maybe shaggy haired muskox — even as you anticipate what’s to come: a night in a cosy igloo after an evening of storytelling, a meal of rich ptarmigan stew and a jaw-dropping celestial show, courtesy of the northern lights. Welcome to your Nunavik winter experience — one that’s deeply rooted in this ancient land where over eons the Inuit people of northern Quebec have developed an unparalleled knowledge of the wild terrain and how to live on it. Inuit Adventures offers two itineraries that allow you to fully immerse yourself in the Inuit way of life, sharing their culture, food and traditions. The first, from Kuujjuaq to the southern shore of Ungava Bay, includes a guided tour of the Inuit community, the chance to buy locally made crafts, a night spent in either an igloo or a heated canvas tent and an unforgettable 45-minute helicopter ride over the tundra. The second sees you based in the remote community of Puvirnituq on the east coast of Hudson Bay, where you spend two nights in an igloo, meet traditional soapstone carvers and throat singers and have the chance to help local fishermen collect Arctic char from beneath the ice. It all adds up to a world-beating winter adventure that you simply can’t experience anywhere else.
