Come see the caribou herds while you still can - we still know how to find them!

The barrenground caribou of Nunavik Canada have some of the largest & least influenced congregates in the world. Every year, many thousands of animals migrate from the tree-line to the calving grounds on the remote Arctic tundra, and then back again during the summer and autumn. Our wildlife camps are set up near one of the main southbound migratory routes, often allowing us high quality caribou migration encounters.

Landing on the tundra of Nunavik at one of remote wildlife camps in 2014

We will start this unique wildllife adventure by boarding an aircraft at the remote northern Inuit settlement of Kuujjuaq Nunavik, and fly to the active area of the on-going summer caribou migration. We will land at a coastal airstrip on the Ungava Peninsula to embark on a 50-100 km journey with Inuit guides in powered traditional freighter canoes up a remote Arctic river, to camp at a major active caribou water crossing.
