You can drink it fast, you can drink it slow, but your lips must touch the toe…
For the brave, swagger through saloon doors and muster up the guts to try the Sourtoe Cocktail, a strange initiation involving a mummified human toe! Members are inducted into the club nightly at the Sourdough Saloon. As Robert Service said, “There are strange things done in the midnight sun”!
Canada’s Wildest Light show…
In the Northwest Territories, the Aurora Borealis is visible 200 nights per year! That’s nearly every single night of the late summer, autumn, winter and early spring. Late at night. Far from town. Up at the top of the world. Up in the canvas of the sky. The heavens burst into colour with the most spectacular Northern Lights on Earth, and do a glorious dance.
Discover the spirit of the Arctic…
Inuit throat singing, or katajjaq, is a form of musical performance uniquely found among the Inuit. The traditional form consists of two women who sing duets in a close face-to-face formation with no instrumental accompaniment, in an entertaining contest to see who can outlast the other. This is an experience you will not want to miss!
