Explore the remote Arctic beauty of Cambridge Bay with Illu Inc.
Cambridge Bay City Tour
2 hour tour of Cambridge Bay
This is probably the most interesting city tour you will ever take (that’s what people tell us). This tour includes seeing the historical old stone church, the visitor’s centre and possibly a local community event at the community hall or elders palace. Cambridge Bay is unique and special in that the whole town is built totally on permafrost. On this tour you get a lot of information from your guide about the people, the land, Inuit land claim agreements, the climate, building methods, the water, heat and sewer systems that make such a town work in this extreme environment, and much more. You can drive around yourself but you will not understand a lot of what you are seeing. This tour is highly informative.
Hikes from The Bay
Grand View Hike to the Viewpoint overlooking Cambridge Bay with us and a white husky on a public trail up to some cliffs for a great view overlooking a large lake and Arctic Nuna.
