“Bucket List” is the most overused term in travel today. With that in mind—you should put a trip to Ivvavik National Park on your Bucket List.
This is not some pedestrian “Bucket List” like hiring a personal butler at a luxe resort in the Caribbean or taking the elevator to the top of the Eiffel Tower. No. This is old school Bucket List—the type of thing only a handful of people on Earth will ever get a chance to experience.
You’ll travel north of the Arctic Circle to a massive national park that sees fewer human footprints than the summit of Mount Everest. This is the home of the 120,000-strong Porcupine caribou herd, primeval-looking muskox, lumbering barrenground grizzlies and Inuvialuit culture dating back nearly 8,000 years.
You’ll stand in awe of the incredible vastness of Earth, marvelling at mountain range free from human interference. You’ll trek for days without seeing anyone outside of your small group of intrepid adventurers. You’ll engage with a cultural liaison who illuminates the vital importance of this land to the indigenous people of the region. And you’ll probably get to eat some reindeer.
I had the privilege of visiting Ivvavik National Park last June. My feature article, “Into Ivvavik” will appear in Explore magazine this March. Please grab a copy of the magazine—I’m quite proud of the article and I hope you enjoy the read as much as I enjoyed the experience.
