Overview

Summer experiences at Noksana Mushing Tours can vary and be tailored for your group and requirements. Our activities near the dog yard include pulling the fish net and selecting white fish for filleting while sorting out fish for the dogs. Learn how to prepare the filleted fish to be smoked over a fire and taste the product of your experience.

New this year: Take an interpretative boat tour to the Pingos and a walk along the Parks Canada boardwalk. Snacks including bannock and tea are included. Prices start at $200 per person and will vary depending on the experience that you request. Join us under the Midnight Sun!

Group bookings can include tours, activities, accommodations, and food catering. Call Michèle at 867-340-0123 for more information and to book for your group.

FAQs

What is the dogsledding experience like?
The dog sledding experience varies depending on the weather and time of year. It can be a cold weather experience if patrons want to experience dog sledding at -40C or one can also experience a relatively warm and sunny ride in the late Springtime at -5C. Each mushing/sledding experience is different and unique depending on the trail, the dogs, and the weather. Bruce, the owner, also makes the ride experiences interesting with snippets about the land, the dogs, and the area’s history while leading the tour. All tours allow you to enjoy the breath-taking sights of our land and feel at one with Mother Nature! It is a complete de-stressing experience.
Will I get to see the Aurora Borealis?
The Aurora Borealis/Northern Lights are never guaranteed; it depends on the weather and whether the sky is clear. There is a better chance of seeing the Northern Lights on cold and clear nights!
How fit do I need to be?
All activities require a minimum fitness level; none of the activities are overly strenuous.
What is the climate like? Temperature variance?
Temperatures can vary from +20C in the summer to a lovely and comfortable +5C in the Springtime. From late December to late February, the temperature ranges from -40C to -50C. We generally do not run the dogs when the temperature falls below -40C as the weather conditions are too risky for the dogs to run.
Can I leave my excess luggage somewhere before the trip? If yes, what is the price for it?
You can leave your excess luggage at the office/house before traveling. It is about half a kilometre from the dog yard. There is no charge for this.
In which language will the tour be conducted?
The tour will be led in English, French, and some of the times in Inuvialuktun. Storytelling is generally done in English but can be provided in Inuvialuktun with an Elder upon request.
