  • Henrik Seva is also known as the Tundra Cowboy. Henrik manages Canada's only free-range herd of reindeer. He lives 200 km north of the Arctic Circle in the Western Arctic. The tundra is his home.

    Raised in Sweden and taught the art of reindeer herding from both his Sami father and grandfather, Henrik moved to Canada at the age of 49. The reason - herding in his native land has quickly been modernized. Here, in the Western Arctic, Henrik is able to be closer to the animals that he adores and is able to spend more time with the reindeer - much like his ancestors and he did growing up.

    See Henrik in action on April 10, 2017, when he leads the 4,500-strong herd across the Mackenzie River Ice Road just north of Inuvik.

    This event coincides with the annual Inuvik Muskrat Jamboree.
