Where is the Northwest Territory located?
In the north of Canada, east of Yukon and west of Nunavut, lie the Northwest Territories. They are about four times the size of Germany and border British Columbia in the southwest, Alberta in the south and Saskatchewan in the southeast. The capital is Yellowknife.
There are numerous lakes in the Northwest Territories. The largest of them, the Great Bear Lake and the Great Slave Lake, are together almost as large as Ireland. Due to the northern location of the Northwest Territories, the summers are characterized by a never setting sun, while in winter it remains dark for days. The long polar days in the middle of the year ensure unforgettable nature experiences. Canoeing or kayaking, fishing, sailing and motorboat tours, hiking – sports enthusiasts will definitely get their money’s worth in the Northwest Territories!
Numerous hiking trails lead you to the national parks and mountains of this province. Wood Buffalo National Park is home not only to the largest herd of bison in the world, but also bears, wolves, moose and many other species of animals. In the Nahanni National Park you will witness a natural event of a different kind: waterfalls that are twice as high as the Niagara Falls plunge more than 100 meters into the depths – you will never forget this sight! Since the Northwest Territories are considered an insider tip so far, you can enjoy these unique views without any stress, noise and crowds.
Highlights not to be missed: The Wood Buffalo National Park, the Virginia Falls in the Nahanni National Park, the Tuktut Nogait, the Nahanni National Park and the Aulavik.
