About Henik Lake Adventures

Thank you for taking a few moments to look us over. All of us here at Henik Lake Adventures live and work in Canada’s North, in the Territory of Nunavut

Henik Lake Adventures was founded in 2005, for those who desire to meet the challenges and live the excitement of hunting and fishing in one of the most beautiful and rugged places in the world.

Henik Lake Adventures is owned by Ryan and Dorothy St. John of Arviat, Nunavut. We recently formed a partnership with another quality outfitter, The Lodge at Little Duck, in order to more efficiently provide the back office services required to support our hunting experiences.

The Lodge at Little Duck has been operating fishing and hunting camps in Northern Manitoba for many years, while also providing vital transportation and logistical services to other businesses/outfitters in the north. Henik Lake Adventures is proud to be entering into our 4th year of partnership with The Lodge at Little Duck. They will continue to provide the high caliber of Arctic hunts and logistical services you have come to expect from Henik Lake Adventures.

Our Camps and Outposts

Arctic hunts are often physically demanding and require careful preparation to ensure a safe and successful hunt.

It’s extremely important that the base camp be able to provide all the essential comforts of home.

Our base camp at Baralzon Lake is just that. Baralzon Lake is centrally located at the northern most limits of the tree-line, with good fishing for Lake Trout, Arctic Grayling, and Northern Pike, as well being a an important caribou travel corridor for the 400,000-strong Qamanirjuaq Caribou Herd.

Should a move be necessary, our mobile tents camps, while basic, will provide you with all the necessities to ensure a comfortable hunt. These mobile camps are used on our Fall Musk Ox Hunts, and on Caribou Hunts when the Caribou are not following historical patterns.

For Spring Muskox Hunts, our base camp is the community of Baker Lake. This is near the Thelon Game Sanctuary in an area traditionally used by the local Musk Ox herds. Being able to come home to a warm room and a hot meal is a great benefit of hunting this area.

Our camps have good food, comfortable accommodations, experienced guides, and an Arctic wilderness that is wild, untamed and unspoiled. We are the first outfitter in the eastern Arctic to invest a significant amount of resources to establish the infrastructure and equipment that will provide you with a safe and successful hunting adventure.

We are committed to building the most reputable, experienced and successful outfitting company in the eastern Arctic region of Nunavut, Canada.

We live, work, hunt and fish in the Arctic all year around.
