"End of the Road" is an inn, a store, and a seasonal restaurant conveniently located on the south end of Beaufort Drive, Tuktoyaktuk's main street. Open since 2014, the inn features 7 rooms with shared bathrooms, living room, laundry, and fully equiped kitchen. The restaurant, located in an old fur shop, is open for lunch and dinner in the summertime, and will cater to large groups year round if given sufficient notice. The opening hours are subject to demand so it's best to call ahead to find out the current hours of operation. A small store attached to the inn and the restaurant carries a selection of snacks and beverages, as well as small gifts and souvenirs.
Tuktoyaktuk is the anglicized form of the native Inuvialuit place-name, meaning "resembling a caribou". According to legend, a woman looked on as some caribou, common at the site, waded into the water and turned into stone, or became petrified. Today, reefs resembling these petrified caribou are said to be visible at low tide along the shore of the town.
