Welcome to Inuvik!

Inuvik means place of man in Inuvialuktun, the language of the Inuit people, and although 200 km (124 mi) north of the Arctic Circle on the shores of the Beaufort Delta may seem like an unlikely place for any person to settle, over 3000 people call this pristine location home. Unlike many far north towns, Inuvik is fortunate to be connected to the Canadian Highway System via the Dempster Highway. That's not to say that getting to this town is the Northwest Territories is a piece of cake though—the town is nearly 1200 km (680 mi) north of Whitehorse, the capital of the Yukon. For many who visit Inuvik, this remote location is a huge draw, as it offers unspoiled access to the best hunting and northern-light viewing that cannot be found within city limits. Besides the vast and stunning scenery, Inuvik's most recognizable attraction is the Our Lady of Victory Roman Catholic Church, which is famously shaped like an Igloo.
