Welcome to Arctic Parks
The 280-person village of Old Crow is home to the Vuntut Gwitch'in First Nations and is unreachable by vehicle. Residents subsist on caribou from the legendary 130,000-strong Porcupine herd, which migrates each year between the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) in Alaska and the Yukon.
On the Yukon side of this vast flat arctic tundra, a large swath of land is now protected in the adjoining Vuntut National Park and Ivvavik National Park. Information on both can be obtained from the Parks Canada office in Inuvik, NWT, where you can get information on the very limited options for organizing visits to the parks. There are no facilities of any kind in the parks.
