NORTHWEST TERRITORIES

 

About Northwest Territories

The territory above Alberta and part of BC, Northwest Territories, is rustic, historic, and wild. The capital city of Yellowknife is a vibrant and cosmopolitan city nestled in the natural beauty of untouched wilderness. In the city you'll find excellent restaurants, comfy accommodations and a whole host of colourful locals. The bustling streets are filled with trendy shops and public art, and there’s always something happening in Yellowknife; like a month of festivities inside a snow castle on the frozen bay. Yellowknife airport has flights from daily direct flights from Calgary, so it’s an easy add on to your ski trip.

The real drawcard of NWT is the fact that it is the world's Northern Lights mecca. The Northern Lights are the strongest in the world in the NWT - the colours are brighter, the displays last longer, the movements are more elaborate - all of this creates a world of spectacular dances performed right above an average of 240 nights per year. The prime season for seeing this spectacle is winter, when the Lights are most striking against the crystal-clear winter skies.
