Get ready for the drive of a lifetime – as you become one of the first people to drive to the Arctic Ocean! The road is categorized into three zones, each with their own unique landscape.

You will start by driving through the Highlands until you get to the edge of the Caribou Hills and this is followed by the Lake Lands. Finally you’ll come to the Tuk Plains, which will take you through the wetlands of the Tuktoyaktuk Coastal Plains. Along the way, there are several unserviced pull-out rest areas to safely stop, stretch your legs and of course capture a picture or two!
