Hands down one of the best experiences of my life. Owners extremely friendly, safety oriented and knowledgeable of what they offer as outfitter guides. Wonderful educational tour of the area highlighting cultural history, scenery, and hotspots to visit, along with a fabulous afternoon of interacting with their dog team and an exceptional dog sled tour of the tundra. Truly my best experience visiting an area. Inukpak Outfitting is #1 in my books!! Thank you for such an amazing Northern experience.

Went for a long hike on the tundra with Francois. He was very knowledgable and has a gentle soul. We hiked on July 1, on a beautiful sunny day. We went East from Apex, travelling in a loop, and did not see anyone near us. We stopped for lunch and made Labrador tea (excellent, try it if you can). Francois also had a variety of food for us, including dried arctic char! We also walked past a Canada Goose nest (photos uploaded). I highly recommend an excursion with Inukpak, and would happily head out with Francois again.

A great introduction to life in Nunavut with a history tour, snowmobiling to the Floe Edge and Husky riding, nothing was too much trouble, we were kitted out with the best equipment to keep us warm and comfortable, and helmets for safety on the snowmobiles. The scenery was superb

We had an amazing adventure May 14 dogsledding with Inukpak Outfitting. Louis and Martine are wonderful guides/owners, all aspects of our safety were addressed before the excursion began. The dogs are so very well loved and taken care of, and we got to interact with all of them! Fabulous day! Everyone who has the chance to come to Iqaluit should look them up!

I visited my cousin in march 2022 in Iqaluit. We took a guided tour with Inukpak outfitting and it was incredible. The staff were very friendly and informative. Our guide, one of the owners, made sure our experience was top notch, she anwsered all our questions and even took a lot of pictures of us on the sled, she even ran beside the sled to make sure we had incredible photos. The lunch stop was excellent, and the skidoo ride was cool as we were able to explore around while staying near the other group. It was worth the $ and experience and i absolutely recommend to anyone thinking of going. I loved it and it made my trip even more worthwhile! Merci merci :)

Together with a friend I did the dog sledding and the snow mobile tour and it was certainly one of the best experiences in my life! The guides very always very friendly and helpful, we could do the tour in our pace and the nature we saw was just stunning. Also, considering that it was a personal tour (just the two of us) the tours are great value for money and you are able to enjoy a tour that is personalized for your. Also, the tour guides where always very happy to explain the history of the region, the difficulties of living there but also how rewarding it is to live in this beautiful paradise.

If you want to experience the Arctic then definitely go with this company! They even provided us with full clothing. We were basically outside for 4-5 hours and my whole body still felt warm and well protected. They definitely cared very much about our wellbeing.

10/10 recommend!!

Having not travelled in over 2 years I decided that my first trip in this time of the New Normal would be to the Arctic. It was the best decision I have made in 2 years and Inukpak Outfitting made it all happen. Once I booked flight and hotel I contacted Inukpak by email to enquire if there were any activities on offer during the first week in April. Within a couple of days I had booked and paid for through e transfer a private dogsledding "expedition". On the day of my excursion the weather was perfect brilliant sunshine and only -25c. You make your own way to the community of Apex ,NU from Iqaluit which is $8 by taxi ( which might be shared with others. For those not familiar taxis in Iqaluit are like buses in the south wherever you are going is $8.) Once at Inukpak's office your outdoor gear is assessed so do not worry if you might not have appropriate clothing the will set you up with the works in my case a better parka and boots. Then off I went by snowmobile to the dogsledding point. The dogs are then assembled and the sled prepared. My guide Fernando was amazing and knowledgeable about the dogsledding technique and local culture and history. But I was captivated by the sheer majesty of a frozen Frobisher Bay and the exhilaration of racing across this landscape to ask questions. The day progressed and it just seemed surreal in the end. There were moments when you do get put work which wakes you up from fantasy as dogs can be unpredictable but that just adds to the story. At the end of my day I even had the opportunity to unharness the dogs and help feed them it was at this moment I saw how remarkable and strong they are. Afterwards I was safely deposited back at the office. A day which was like no other. I wish to thank everyone at Inukpak for creating an experience which captures the reason why I travel. For those that may read this review and know what I mean then you also know Inukpak is for you.
