Loved this tour. Kylik Kisoun Taylor is a visionary tour-operator who is constantly trying new ways to get southerners to experience the north. Meaning: hands-on activities such as tundra snowmobiling, reindeer herding, dog-sledding, igloo-building & driving the ice road (no longer on offer after April 2017). He provided us with learned, savvy and resourceful Inuvialuit/Gwich'in guides, cooks and storytellers. The going was not always smooth, which allowed for a few welcome surprises and much serendipity. I wholly recommend TundraNorth Tours for the adventurous spirit.

Well organized, friendly and capable guides. It was a long day, but worth every minute of the day. Going to Tuk and stepping into the Arctic Ocean was a highlight, walking in Tuk with the guide ( a really nice local man )was interesting. Finally, the river ride back to Inuvik : great scenery, Kylik (owner) is passionate about his home, careful development and sharing of this land. It is a long day so take a Warm jacket to wear on the boat where the temperature was coolish. There is only a small snack provided , and it is a long day so bring along something to eat. If you are in Inuvik take the tour.

Tundra North was able to provide THE absolute highlight of a holiday we recently took across 3 countries in 3 weeks. We wanted to see a reindeer herd and spend time with the local Inuvik people during one of the coldest times of the year. Tundra North met our specific and challenging holiday requirements....Gerry our guide was generous in every way...sharing his local and cultural knowledge with us so freely and eloquently. The reindeer herd was an incredible sight as were the northern lights display we saw from the back of our skidoo's on our way home! Thankfully we were also able to hire good quality cold weather gear. We felt like we really got off the tourist route here and mixed with the locals, exactly what we wanted. Thx to tundra North!

I was originally booked for the 4 hour tour (fly up fly back) to tuk, but as I was traveling solo and no one else had booked this tour they had to cancel it. But they were kind enough to offer to put me on the all day tour (boat up, fly back) at no extra cost the following day. I really enjoyed the tour, Kylik was a great guide and taught us lots about his Inuit culture, showed us some of the McKenzie delta, and took us to a whaling camp. Only 4 other people on the tour so not too crowded. John gave us a tour of Tuk, not a heck of a lot to see but it was great reaching the Arctic Ocean and getting to put my feet in! A cheeky dog stole my sock! Then Patrick flew us back to inuvik via a slightly scenic route in a little plane. When we got back to inuvik we got to taste some muktuk (whale) and fish.

These tours offered cultural/traditional experiences and storytelling, plenty of photo opportunities, traditional food (eg. whale, reindeer, smoked herring, and berries), a vast array of scenery, and short hikes.
Mother Nature interferred with our chance to explore Tuk and dip our toes into the Arctic Ocean. However, Mother Nature redeemed herself with an evening/night of the "aurora borealis" lightshow.
If you enjoy holidays which are "out of the ordinary"; and if you don't mind Mother Nature determining your daily itinerary....consider any of these tours.
