Vuntut National Park
Remote and unspoiled Arctic wilderness, a First Nations history dating back millennia and the setting for one of the planet’s great animal migrations await the few who make the trek to Vuntut National Park.
Take a tour of the exhibits, listen to audio recordings of elders’ stories, admire traditional tools, learn about the magnificent Porcupine Caribou Herd, and find out what life was like in the ancient Beringian landscapes of the last ice age.
The Old Crow Flats is a vast wetland complex of shallow lakes and small streams, important to the Vuntut Gwitchin for subsistence hunting and other traditional practices.
The Porcupine Caribou Herd is one of the largest caribou herds in North America. The herd is central to the culture and way of life of the Vuntut Gwitchin.
