Fort Simpson is the only Village in the NWT and are proud of their unique small-town status. Their smaller size (pop. 1250) means that they really do notice travellers. They want to make your visit a memorable one.

From the mesmerizing displays of the aurora borealis to the never-ending days spent under the midnight sun, Inuvik, Northwest Territories is a destination of multiple extremes that will keep you wanting more.

This is the North’s capital of cool. Here you’ll find it all: Skyscrapers rearing up from the outcrops, casting long shadows over Great Slave Lake. Sailboats tacking through the gleaming waves and floatplanes looping in the cloudless sky. A festival in an ice-palace, and a music concert on a sandy lakeshore. A clutch of houseboats, bright and offbeat and rocking gently on the swells. A smorgasbord of flavors: Ethiopian restaurants, sushi joints, and wine bars that serve muskox burgers. Log cabins beside mansions beside houses shaped like teepees. Visitors from Japan, Toronto, Tuktoyaktuk. And a whole bunch of friendly, off-beat locals, making their home and having a heckuva time in the biggest little city in Canada.

Hike in a National Park at the top of the world, where caribou spend the summer. Canoe a wild northern river few have ever seen. Hop a bush plane and go flightseeing over the Nahanni, the Mackenzie Delta, or Great Slave Lake's East Arm. Or relax aboard a jet boat, and travel a northern river to a secluded mountain lodge.

Drive the uncrowded roads and marvel at the wildlife. Roadside parks and campgrounds will welcome you. Wildlife, wood bison, moose and bears, can be spotted right from the highway. And rare birds from across the Americas nest here each summer.
