I have lived in the north practically all my life but I’ve never actually been to Inuvik, NT. I’ve actually been to more of western Nunavut than western NWT. I’ve been to Cambridge Bay, NU, Kugluktuk, NU, Bathurst Inlet, NU and so on.
I’m excited to see what is going on in Inuvik. The terrain has always intrigued me and been somewhat of a mystery to me. It is further north than Yellowknife but is still below the treeline and lies along the arctic coast.
The point of my trip to Inuvik is business but I will have the flexibility to explore the area and find out what is going on up there. My goal is to try and experience Inuvik as if I am a tourist and record everything I am seeing and doing.
While I’m in Inuvik the Great Northern Artists Festival will be taking place, which will be one of the events I’m going to check out. The festival features artists from all over the north showcasing there art and taking part in workshops.
Tomorrow I may even get the chance to go to Tuktoyuktuk, NT, which is an even smaller community.
Let the adventure begin.
