Welcome to Moosonee + Moose Factory!
The Gateway to the Arctic
Located on the edge of the Arctic, the Town of Moosonee was originally settled in 1903 by the Revillon Frères of Paris as a fur trading post to compete with the Hudson’s Bay post across the river in Moose Factory. Getting to Moosonee is half the fun! All travellers arrive by train or by plane. Once you’re there, you can travel to Moose Factory by boat taxi in summer, by ice road in winter, and by helicopter during spring break-up.
DO – Guided trips on the Moose River are an excellent way to see a bearded seal snoozing on the shore or a beluga whale coming up for air!
