Northwest Territories Trip Planner
Welcome to Northwest Territories!Wildlife viewing opportunities are legendary in the Northwest Territories. The wild and exotic beauty of Nahanni National Park has to be witnessed in person. Try canoeing, hiking, snowmobiling and dog sledding. Fort Simpson can provide a good base for exploring this region. Yellowknife, the capital of NWT, is the main city centre for the region and also offers a perfect starting point for countless activities into this rugged and wild land. Two of the biggest attractions in the NWT are the long summer days of the Midnight Sun, and the aurora borealis or Northern Lights that can be seen in the night sky from late August until January.
