Herschel Island is covered in wildflowers during the warmer months, and travelers will often spot animals like the musk-ox, caribou, and arctic foxes. Day trip activities can include hiking, bird watching near Pauline Cove, photography, and opportunities to learn about the history and culture of the Inuvialuit.
