Accommodations are somewhat rustic but comfortable.  Toilets, running water and hot showers are provided.  The bunk beds have mattresses but guests are responsible for their own sleeping bags, pillow cases, towels and toiletries. 

One experienced Inuit guide is provided for every 2 or 3 anglers.  Fishing is done from outboard-powered freighter canoes.  Usually, drift fishing is most effective for arctic char and salmon, but shore fishing is also productive, especially at low tide.
