Your Home in the Arctic


The Arctic Chalet can offer  you a variety of accommodations to suit your needs.  We are conveniently located just 3 kilometers from the center of town on the edge of a tranquil lake surrounded by forests and indigenous flowers & plants.  In this beautiful natural setting you can experience the real feel of the north.  Here you are also away from city lights that can interfere with viewing the spectacular northern lights - the Aurora Borealis.  And best of all  here you can hear the occasional howling of our White Huskies that want to meet you and welcome you to the North.


Our two-story log home offers two nice guest rooms with a shared kitchenette and bath on the upper level. Our Lakeview Room has a queen bed and a single bed and has a private covered balcony with a great view over the property and the lake. The Family Room has a queen bed and two single beds and a small covered balcony.  The entire upstairs is for guests only while our own living quarters are on the main floor and are totally separate for your privacy and ours. Come and go as you wish anytime of the day or night.

Our historic log cabins which were among the first cabins to be built in Inuvik have now been renovated to modern standards  and are nice and comfortable. Beds are decked with down duvets and other quilts.  All cabins have electricity, running water and have access to wireless internet.  Most have TV.

Cabin Units
Our log cabin units do not share any common areas.   Each cabin structure has either two or three separate units. They all have private bath,  kitchenettes with microwave, small fridge and a hot plate.   Most units have a double or queen bed plus a single bed.  One unit has a queen bed only.
Prices range from $150-$170

Premium Cabins
Our 3 premium log cabins have private bath and are not divided into units.  They  are more private and spacious and have full kitchen facilities that include a stove with oven and a large fridge.

  • The Twilight and Sunrise cabins each have a queen bed and a single bed in one large room, and nice outdoor  porches with barbecues.  Price: $200
  • The Eagle's Nest cabin is a log cabin with a queen bed in the main room with the the kitchen/dining area.  In the back room we have  bunk beds and a cot.  But there is no room for a door so this is not technically a one-bedroom cabin.  You walk through this room to get to the bathroom.  The cabin is designed for a family of 4-5 people.  
    Price:  $250

The Arctic Chalet is located within walking distance of Inuvik;  1.5 kilometers.   We offer town shuttles from 9 am to 6 pm every day except Saturday and taxi service is readily available.  Our Airport shuttles are $25 each or $10 per person and cost less than paying for a taxi cab.

Traveling with a pet?  We have some rooms designated as “pet-friendly”.  And for those who do not want a pet-friendly room we have cabin units where we never allow pets.
