My recent trip to Saskatoon and dog sledding adventure brought back memories of a trip I took to Inuvik Northwest Territories Canada that I wanted to share. Inuvik is 200km North of the Arctic Circle and is on the beautiful Mackenzie Delta. Inuvik is just south of the treeline so all of the trees are very short. The tallest trees are only about the size of an average person. To dog sled the north is a must see adventure and an attraction I would book again.

It looks like a little polar bear cub, but it's actually a white husky puppy and future sled dog. We were fortunate that Arctic Chalet Resort had a few husky puppies that they let us cuddle while we were there.

Besides being home for the sled dogs, Arctic Chalet's dog kennels also accommodate boarding and doggy daycare. The huskies are hardy dogs built for the harsh northern climate. In fact, they prefer the cold winters to the summer heat.

By early November when I visited Inuvik, sunset is at 3:30pm. IN only a few more weeks, Inuvik will experience 30 days without the sun breaking the horizon. There will still be about 4-5 hours light. However, after 30 days of this, the Town of Inuvik holds a big festival for the Sunrise party. This festival is celebrated on the first day that the sun peaks over the horizon in early January. The sun will rise mid-afternoon and will only break the horizon less than 30 minutes before it sets again.

At only 152km south of the Arctic ocean, those northern winds don't have much of an opprotunity to warm up. This makes wind chill a rather serious business. Be sure to dress very warm and to accept the use of big giant and super warm locally made...
