Northwest Territories Overview

Yellowknife Bay Northwest Territories CA

 

Sandwiched between Yukon and Nunavut in northern Canada, the province of Northwest Territories is composed primarily of boreal forest. Quite large in land mass, it is on the other hand, quite sparsely populated. The southern region enjoys a subarctic climate, while the northern region is polar. The majority of its people are Aboriginal, and although there are eleven official languages, English is commonly spoken.

Capital and largest city, Yellowknife, is well-known for its Canadian Arctic Diamonds and the recreational opportunities offered at nearby Great Slave Lake. The Mackenzie River, longest in Canada, originates in this lake and empties into the Arctic Ocean. Yellowknife is modern, yet rustic, with a populace nearing 20,000. Several Northwest Territories Hotels are located in Yellowknife, with others scattered throughout the territory. A portion of Kluane National Park spills over into the southwestern corner of the province. 

The northern region of this province can deliver some brutal weather, so be prepared! Autumn and winter are the times to witness the Northern Lights. Bush planes are popular for “flightseeing”; for those of you more adventurous, canoe or kayak the wildest rivers you have ever seen! Drive the famous Dempster Highway to Inuvik where you can set out to explore the Land of the Midnight Sun. This town, in the Mackenzie Delta, is built on permafrost (frozen delta soils). Stop in at Our Lady of Victory, an igloo church, while there.

Tuktut Nogait National Park, translating to “young caribou”, is tucked into the very northeast corner of Northwest Territories, about 170 km north of the Arctic Circle. Remote and pristine, you will see rolling tundra and colorful canyons along with wildlife such as caribou, grizzly bears and raptors. Great Bear Lake is located south of Tuktut Nogait; it is the largest lake contained entirely in Canada.

Directly north of the mainland is Banks Island; it is basically uninhabited and a protected bird sanctuary. A portion of Victoria Island, to the east of Banks Island, lies in Northwest Territories; a small population of Inuit call Victoria Island “home”.
