Canada's north is home to the provinces of the Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut. In summer this is the land of the midnight sun so there is plenty of daylight to explore the mountainous tundra regions, forests, rivers and lakes. In winter there will be snow - a lot of snow! - but this makes it the ideal place to visit for a dog sledging adventure or enjoying winter sports. The dark skies of winter also make Northern Canada one of the best places in the world for viewing the Aurora Borealis - the Northern Lights. In the Yukon you can retrace the gold rush to the Klondike River and visit Whitehorse. In the Northwest Territories, you can cross the Arctic Circle and visit the Mackenzie Delta or drive the Dempster Highway. Nunavut was first settled by Canada's indigenous people over 4000 years ago and is a vast natural paradise of untouched landscapes and wildlife.
The capital city of Canada's Northwest Territories, located on the shores of the Great Slave Lake and a great place for viewing the Northern Lights.
Yukon is situated in the upper Northwest corner of Canada, and sits between British Columbia and the Arctic Ocean, with Alaska to the west and the Northwest Territories to the east. Its jaw-dropping natural features are what set this place apart - a land rich with dramatic mountain vistas, wild rivers and crystal clear lakes, and close to 80 percent remains pristine wilderness. The Yukon is home to more than 160,000 caribous, 70,000 moose, 22,000 mountain sheep, 7,000 grizzly bears, 10,000 black bears and 250 species of birds… and only 34,000 humans!
From Fall to Spring, when darkness comes to Yukon skies, the Northern Lights come out. First, you might see a hint of neon colour in the starry sky, then a jagged burst of green, and soon you're transfixed by an ethereal display of shimmering aurora borealis.
