Introduction

Behold the Autumnal wilds of the Canadian Arctic on this suggested itinerary to Canada’s spectacular landscapes. Your journey begins in the Rockies, amongst a skyline of forested peaks before escaping northward, to the land of the Northern Lights. Arrive in the Arctic Barren Lands at your solar-powered lodge on Ennadai Lake, enviably located on the migratory route of the Qamanirjuaq caribou. Spend your days discovering the landscape, wildlife and archaeological sites of the tundra. Marvel at the caribou herds, in their hundreds of thousands, as they pass by, grazing in small groups. In the evenings, rest your feet and enjoy fresh Canadian fare before treating yourself to a rejuvenating trip to the lakeside sauna.

Discover the Arctic Barren Lands.

Situated along the migratory route of the Qamanirjuaq caribou, watch as one of the largest herds in North America roam the Barren Lands.

Caribou Rutting
