Inuvik - Inuvvik (place of man)

Inuvik is situated on the east arm of the Mackenzie River 300 miles northwest of Norman Wells in the Beaufort Delta. It is a sub base for North-Wright Airways and we offer service to Aklavik (seasonal), Fort McPherson (seasonal) and Fort Good Hope. Inuvik is an entry point for the Canadian Arctic. Inuvik was established in 1954 when severe flooding in the small community of Aklavik occurred and the federal government relocated the community to a large, high, level area where flooding was not likely. Today Inuvik is largely based around the oil industry in the Beaufort Sea area. The community has a wealth of local art and northern history, and a culture combining Dene and Inuit. Inuvik is a starting point for sightseeing tours of the Arctic coastline, Mad Trapper tours in Aklavik and lost patrol tours in Fort MacPherson.
