Northwest Territories Vacations, Tour Packages & Travel Experiences
Nestled in the middle of Canada’s Great North lies the sprawling Northwest Territories, a remote forested landscape where adventure awaits. Arctic tundra, breathtaking islands, glacier lakes, and over 450 mountains make up its rugged terrain, where Indigenous peoples have lived in harmony with the land for thousands of years.
The magic of the Northwest Territories lies in the elements. Yellowknife, the friendly capital of the Territories, is the best place to see the Northern Lights in the world. You don’t even need to leave the town’s borders to catch the mystical Aurora Borealis dancing across the sky, a spectacular display of Northern Canada’s natural beauty. In the winter, locals roll with the freezing temperatures rather than against them, travelling across the world’s longest ice roads to reach remote communities. Dogsledding, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing are not out of the question as snow falls across the land, inviting you to challenge its cool embrace.
Immerse yourself in the natural world of the NWT at Nahanni National Park Reserve, where the roar of Virginia Falls will stun you with its raw power, sitting twice as high as its Niagara counterpart. Paddlers, both novice and experts, have plenty of options in the crystalline waterways of the Northwest, from calm rafting opportunities to rushing rapids that set your adrenaline on high. Keep an eye out for bison, caribou, and bears as you hike into the backcountry of the Mackenzie Mountains, untouched lands where you’ll only hear your own footfalls for miles.
