Explore Canada's Northwest Territories
The Northwest Territories is a land of contrasts. It is 1.17 million square kilometres of mountains, forests and tundra threaded by wild, clean rivers feeding thousands of pristine lakes. Over 40,000 people live amid this rugged natural beauty.
Nature is in balance here. You can view rare wildlife species, from white wolves to white whales, and see herds of bison, prowling bears, moose and caribou by the thousands.
This is the land where the world's best northern lights dance during the dark winter months and where the sun never sets during the summer.
Come experience the Northwest Territories!
