This is a very cool building located on the main drag and impossible to moss. Hours of operation are limited but the church is often open. I advise stopping by when you have the time as it may be open.

I have never seen anything like this. A friendly person inside the church told about the church, and gave us opportunity to take pictures. This is a must see, when you are in Inuvik.

A tour of the church explains the building of the church and the history of the people involved. Although the tour was free, you can leave a donation or purchase t-shirts.

I had seen many pictures and it was kind of fine to see because of that but I had no idea about the construction and history and importance until I went to the tour offered each day at seven.

I went to the tour of the igloo church which discussed the building structure in the permafrost. The base is a concrete bowl which sits and rolls on the ground it shifts during the year. The most interesting thing is the architecture, not the Catholic...More
