Where are we going today?

Aulavik, meaning “ place where people travel ” in Inuvialuktun, protects more than 12,000 square kilometres of arctic lowlands on the north end of Banks Island. The park encompasses a variety of landscapes from fertile river valleys to polar deserts, buttes and badlands, rolling hills, and bold seacoasts. At the heart of Aulavik is the Thomsen River, which offers visitors a chance to paddle one of the continent’s most northerly navigable waterways. This pristine arctic environment is home to both the endangered Peary caribou and to the highest density of muskoxen in the world. The wildlife and land have supported aboriginal peoples for more than 3,400 years, from Pre-Dorset cultures to contemporary Inuvialuit.

    Nice place. Great salmon. Don't make any sudden moves, as the locals aren't accustomed to seeing other people. Oh, and bring a coat.

    I always stop here to stretch my legs while going through the northwest passage. The gift shop and snack shop are always clean and have friendly employees. My only complaint is the cheap, one-ply toilet paper in the bathroom.
