Take a trip to Yukon’s remote Ivvavik National Park
Fewer than 100 visitors a year fly in to park on the Canada/Alaska border
Ivvavik National Park is celebrating its 30th birthday this year.
The remote park, which covers the northern tip of Yukon on the Alaska border, was created when the Inuvialuit signed their final agreement in 1984.
The park averages about 100 visitors a year, a number it’s hoping to increase by offering new services such as catered meals at camping sites.
“We're finding changes in demographics, an older population in the country, and people are opting for more comfortable types of situations,” says Rene Wissink.
About 10 groups of visitors are planning to make the trip to Ivvavik National Park this year.
