Colville Lake K'ahbamitue Kapami Tue (ptarmigan net)

Colville Lake is a relatively new community which was started in 1962 by missionary and Roman Catholic priest Bern Will Brown. Bern is a northern painter and author and still lives in the community, he also owns a local museum that any passerby should make the time to visit. Colville Lake is a mostly traditional Dene community relying largely on hunting, trapping and fishing. The community is located just north of the Arctic Circle approximately 124 north of Norman Wells. North-Wright Airways has scheduled service into the community four days per week out of Norman Wells and has a connecting flight out of Inuvik through Fort Good Hope three days per week. Colville Lake has a bed and breakfast along with a fishing lodge which offers an exceptional true northern experience.
