Best Places to Visit in Northwest Territories

The Northwest Territories, which are about six times the size of the United Kingdom, cover a vast area of Canada north of the 60th parallel and close to the North Pole. This is a land of powerful rivers, towering mountains, and treeless tundra. It's a hard land, but one that will leave an indelible mark on you long after you leave. From the high Mackenzie Mountains in the west to the tundra regions in the east, this huge expanse stretches (and the border with Nunavut Territory, established in 1999).
