"Inuit Odyssey" is 2011 Tour of Lifetime

Nunavik listed on travel magazine’s top 50 tours

"Inuit Odyssey" includes muskox viewing, mussel-picking, throat-singing, dogsleds

The magazine National Geographic Traveler has selected a trip to Nunavik for its “2011 Tours of Lifetime” issue.

The May-June issue of the glossy magazine features its picks for the world’s top 50 tours, including a trip to Kangiqsujuaq and neighbouring Diana Island.

The trip, called “Inuit Odyssey,” takes visitors to Diana Island to see muskox, then to Kangiqsujuaq for mussel-picking under the ice, traditional throat singing and dogsledding with “the region’s top mushers.”
Comment:  If the magazine offers new tours every year, are the previous years' tours really the tours of a lifetime? Hmm.

For more on the subject, see Indians in Top 50 Road Trips.
