Put This On Your Bucket List Of Places To Sled
A snowmobile safari into the remote Arctic wilderness of northern Canada
The Netsilingmiut, or “people of the seal,” are traditional people who have occupied this isolated area for centuries and have only recently had regular contact with the outside world.
A new expedition into this remote land combines the thrill of traveling by snowmobile with the excitement of being in the deep polar wilderness. The “Arctic Circle Snowmobile Safari” is an 8-day/7-night package, led by Inuit guides, that provides the ultimate hands-on adventure.
It is offered by The Great Canadian Travel Company,
This region of Arctic Canada is home to polar bears, caribou and musk oxen as well as walruses, seals, whales and myriad seabirds. On the program you will have the opportunity to spend time in local Inuit communities meeting artists and elders and learning more about the rich culture of these resilient and remote people.
The Arctic Circle Snowmobile Safari is priced at $4,950 per
person, plus tax. Departure dates are April 14 and April 26,
2013. Included in the package are two nights’ hotel accommodation at the
Inukshuk Inn in Kugaarak, three nights at the Naujat Hotel in Repulse Bay (some
15 miles south of Kugaaruk and located exactly on the Arctic Circle), two nights’
accommodation in Winnipeg and all meals, as well as snowmobile rental. Flights
