Ever dream of spending a few months living in one of the world's harshest climates? Our Winter 2021 Projects might be your chance.

It is our mission to provide visitors from all over the world with an authentic experience of the unique atmosphere and culture of our home in Canada’s North. As a well-established tourism company, we are using the down time due to the global halt in tourism as time to diversify our impacts and create a more resilient business. Doing this is not only fulfilling our long term mission of developing a self-sustaining Arctic Eco-Village but also investigating innovative solutions to major obstacles facing communities in the North: food and housing insecurity, decolonizing our economy, capacity development, and cultural revitalization.
