Visit to Aklavik, part 1: Quiet community these days

Aklavik is a small hamlet near Inuvik. It can be accessed by boat and plane for most of the year. However there is an ice road from December to April.

The hamlet has an official population of about 600 people, but it could very well be lower. The community has few wage-paying jobs outside of local government but is well situated for hunting, trapping and fishing.
