Video Post: Jaw-Dropping Ivvavik National Park

More people will stand atop Mount Everest than will visit Ivvavik National Park. Are you ready to explore this breathtaking Arctic preserve?

In This Travel Video You Will Discover:

  • Stunning Arctic Landscapes
  • Midnight Sun Time-Lapses
  • Majestic Mountains & Pristine Rivers

Ivvavik National Park was a privilege to see. Tucked away at the tip of the Yukon, with its base camp set at 69 degrees north and hundreds of kilometres from the nearest road, only a handful of people will ever visit this park. Untouched by the last Ice Age, it’s a place of unique rock formations, abundant wildlife—we saw muskox, caribou, grizzlies and Dall’s sheep—jaw-dropping mountain vistas, clearwater rivers and vast open tundra. And it’s a place of rich culture, illuminated by the Inuvialuit people—stewards of the land for millennia.

And the hiking… wow. There was no point in the five days I spent in Ivvavik where I wasn’t surrounded by an awesome panorama. From deep gorges carved by a frothy river; to tundra dotted with bright lupins; to multi-coloured slate stabbing from mountaintops like the spines on a dragon’s back; to the midnight sun circling the whole expanse like a halo. It is the most beautiful natural environment I have ever seen. (And I’ve seen a lot.)

I could go on. And I will, in an article to appear in explore magazine in Spring 2017. But for now, take a two-minute journey through incredible Ivvavik with this teaser video:
