The Northwest Territories is a wilderness sanctuary where you can experience exhilarating outdoor adventures in a pristine natural setting and connect with the incredible people of the region. It is also one of the best places in the world to see the Northern Lights.
If the great outdoors is calling you, there is perhaps nowhere as enticing as the Northwest Territories. You can catch prehistoric-sized fish swimming in gargantuan lakes, paddle rushing rivers carving through glacial terrain, and trek pristine national parks bigger than many countries. In contrast to the glaciers and the snow, the Northwest Territories is also home to friendly people and warm hospitality.
