Nunavik Makes National Geo Traveler’s Top 50 Tours List for 2011

Nunavik has made National Geographic Traveler’s bucket list.

The renowned travel magazine has put Nunavik’s Kangiqsujuaq and Diana Island on its list of 50 must-do tours in the “2011 Tours of Lifetime” issue.

Two Canada tours made it onto the list in the North America category.

ENF Canada’s “Inuit Odyssey: Under the Snow and Ice” tour, which lasts seven days and costs US$6,067, starts in Montreal with an Inuit primer, then flies the traveler to northern Quebec to see musk oxen. From there it’s on to Kangiqsujuaq to harvest mussels from under the ice, go mushing and catch some traditional throat singing, National Geographic Traveler said.

On the eco-tour front, there’s British Columbia’s Great Bear Rain Forest coastline, which can be explored via schooner thanks for an eight- to 10-day trip offered by Maple Leaf Adventures.

Tours were chosen “for the outfitters’ commitment to authenticity, immersion, sustainability, and connection,” National Geographic Traveler said. It happens to be the attitude that ENF Canada founder Roc Anctil brings to the job.

“We’ve always worked with very small groups to make sure the experience is unique and personal,” Anctil told the Nunatsiaq News. “We’re not looking for volume; we’re looking for the best experience.”
