Flightseeing Tours in Northwest Territories
During the Northwest Territory early years air travel played a big part in the development of the region. The planes connected communities and delivered supplies to remote camps, villages and mines. There were no roads and the rivers and air, at the time, were the transportation routes for many during the pioneer years.
Today, the air industry still plays a large role in the Northwest Territory servicing remote camps, mines, oil sites and villages. But times have changed and services have been added. One such addition to the air industry are sightseeing tours - air tours otherwise called flightseeing tours.
Access Remote Lakes and Mountains
Floatplanes provide access to remote lakes, rivers and mountain areas of the Northwest Territory. They often provide the transportation for accessing remote drop off points for backpacking, canoe and rafting adventures. Areas which are otherwise hard to access on foot, waterway or vehicle.
Absolutely Amazing Sightseeing
Floatplanes and 2 wheeled planes provide flightseeing tours. These are tours which fly over mountains, lakes, deltas, tundra, oceans, islands, wildlife herds, parks and heritage rivers. Most N.W.T. communities have floatplane charters and air charters providing flightseeing tours.
