ARCTIC IMMERSION IN NUNAVIK
 
(2017 - Winter Issue)

Writer: DAVID WEBB



Inuit Adventures offers a taste of traditional life.

For millennia, the Indigenous people of Nunavik have mastered the techniques for living off the land, even during the long Arctic winter. Today, tour operator Inuit Adventures offers immersive experiences where you can learn these same skills, imparting a rich understanding of Inuit culture and the landscape upon which it was forged.

During the longer and milder days of March and April, their classic tour begins in Kuujjuaq—Nunavik’s main hub. Become acquainted with this unique community as you peruse artisan shops and meet locals. The following day, your adventure accelerates with a guided dogsled ride into the Ungava Bay region. Deep in the wilderness, you’ll set up a traditional camp, dine on local game and fish and sleep soundly beneath a sea of stars—or maybe even the aurora borealis.

Up the ante in Puvirnituq, an isolated community on the Hudson Bay coast. Inspired by a trip taken by National Geographic’s digital nomad Robert Reid, here, you’ll connect with master igloo-builder Peter “Boy” Ittukallak for a dogsled adventure across the sea ice, followed by a hands-on course in igloo construction. And yes, you can even sleep in the structure you build—just like the Inuit and their ancestors have for thousands of years.
