Visit the Northwest Territories


Follow the Dempster Highway from Inuvik back to the Yukon for stunning views of the tundra and wildlife. And complete your Northwest Territories travel experience by visiting the many lakes and parks on offer.


Visit Yellowknife's museum dedicated to the Dene First Nations tribe from which the city gets its name. Experience the frontier lifestyle on a walk around Old Town. Or visit Long Lake beach, which hosts a brilliant music festival. From here you can access trails that explore Fred Henne Territorial Park and surrounding lakes.

National Parks

Visit Nahanni National Park for canyons, waterfalls and hot springs. Or visit Tuktut Nogait National Park in the north, which features Arctic wildlife such as bluenose west caribou, muskoxen and arctic char. You can try fishing and paddling but further adventures into the park are for experienced hikers only. Alternatively, travel to Fort Smith to access the Wood Buffalo National Park to view wood bison and continue south into Alberta to discover the salt plains.
