Northern Canada – the Northern Territories of Canada includes the Yukon Territories, Northwest Territories (N.W.T) and Nunavut.
The Yukon Territories (“The Land of the Midnight Sun”); the N.W.T (“Canada’s Last Frontier” “North of Sixty” and, just recently, “The Aurora Capital of the World”) and Nunavut (“our land” in the Inuktitut language) showcase some of Canada’s most remote, rugged and untouched wilderness scenery in the country… and they are home to our jaw dropping Northern Lights. All territories are unique and rich in adventure, wildlife, geography and history.
Yukon, Canada is recognized for its sightseeing highways, wildlife sightings, rivers, lakes, heritage sites, trails, historic buildings, dog sledding, First Nation art, the Klondike Gold Rush and so much more. Directly to the south of the Yukon is the Liard River Basin and to the north is the Arctic Circle. To the east is the Mackenzie Mountain Range and to the west are the Ogilvie, St Elias and Dawson Mountain Ranges. Spectacular!
The Northwest Territories, Canada is recognized for its majestic waterfalls, legendary rivers, large lakes, river ferries, bush pilot history, sightseeing highways, ice roads, river deltas, wetlands, wildlife reserves and First Nation culture and traditions. The N.W.T. explores the Arctic Tundra, the Barrenlands, a boreal forest, mountain ranges, the Canadian Shield, historic rivers and the Arctic Ocean. Mackenzie River is Canada’s longest river (1,738 km – 1080 miles) and Great Slave Lake is the second largest lake located within the borders of Canada and the deepest lake in North America reaching depths of 616 metres (2,027 feet).
