HOW TO GET HERE
To reach Ivvavik National Park, you need to take a Twin Otter bush plane. Parks Canada offers one-week all-inclusive fly-in trips from June to early July for $3,375. The 70-minute flight out of Inuvik in the Northwest Territories crosses the Mackenzie River Delta, where countless blue channels fan out and snake their way to the Beaufort Sea. (Have your camera ready!) What else you need to know Since there are no trails, interpretive guides lead various hikes. There is also an Inuvialuit cultural host on each trip and a camp cook who will whip up daily feasts that can include caribou soup, Eskimo doughnuts and more. Tents are provided, and, best of all, there’s a new state-of-the-art wash house with flush toilets and hot showers!
