Canada: Reindeer Migration
Not only do you have an excellent chance of catching the aurora borealis in the Northwest Territories of Canada, you can witness the annual reindeer migration, too. Follow a herd 3,000 strong as they quietly cross the tundra towards their spring calving grounds. As if that weren’t cool enough, you’ll learn how to smoke fish and can drive your own dogsled to the igloo you helped build. It could very well be the most Canadian travel experience of them all.
Experience the Arctic with locals as you live and learn the mysteries of the Northern ways of life. Enjoy local cuisine and cultural activities shared by your Inuvialuit host as part of this authentic Arctic experience. Travel on your very own snowmobile alongside the reindeer herders who have crossed this terrain year after year, generation after generation, venturing into the icy-blue horizon lines, herding thousands of reindeer who must be hurried across the Arctic tundra to their spring calving grounds.
If the cold doesn’t scare you and you’re a fan of majestic landscapes, snowmobiles, Inuit culture and animal migrations, then this is the right fit for you!
