Travel to the barrenlands, the Land of the Midnight Sun, home of the Aurora Borealis — unchanged wilderness since the beginning of time. Wildlife, which is unique to the Canadian Arctic, is abundant. The migration of the Bathurst caribou herd is one of the last remaining, true spectacles of nature and can be witnessed annually at Mackay Lake. Whether you come to capture Giant Lake Trout, fly fish for Arctic Grayling, or to photograph the Arctic Tundra, our professional management and staff will help make your trip safe and enjoyable. We have been providing outfitting services in the Central Barren Lands north of Yellowknife since 1983. We offer hunting safaris for caribou, black bear, arctic wolf, guided by experienced professionals. We also offer fishing expeditions by the hour, day or week.
