Hunter’s B&B, Tuktoyaktuk Canada

We have been privileged to base ourselves out of the Hunters B&B while here in Tuk this week. It’s nothing short of an oasis compared to the hotels and guesthouses we’ve been through over the last few months so we’d like to give them a quick bit of promotion.

So, if you’re looking for a remote spot on the northern coastline of Canada look them up. (The manager Patsy can be reached at pcyakeleya@hotmail.com)

Tuk is a cute little town at the end of the Mackensie river. Local attractions include fishing and hunting, ice caves (used for refrigerated storage), beach bonfires and hiking trails on the tundra.

At present there is an airport and a winter ice-road that connect to the rest of Canada (featured in Ice Truckers), but there is also a year-round highway project underway that should be ready in about five years time.
