Northwest Territories - Unique Experiences and Wildlife

Create a Magical Northern Adventure in the Northwest Territories. View awesome displays of Northern Lights at midnight in autumn and winter. Fish for world class trophies on one of our super-sized lakes in the long days of northern summer. Or you could drive across the Arctic Circle to the amazing Mackenzie Delta, on the Dempster Highway.

Loading Unique Experiences and Wildlife Items

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.
