The pristine Northwest Territories brings to mind images of
immense areas of tundra and forests. In this beautiful and wild
region, opportunities for romantic adventures await. The bustling
city of Yellowknife, the capital, offers a convenient base
from which to explore the area.
Bring your camera and set out for a day or two of wildlife watching.
Explore on your own or join a nature tour, and see an amazing array of
wildlife from bear, bison, fox, musk-ox, whales, caribou, and if you're
lucky, even the elusive wolf! You can even take an amazing flightseeing
tour to view the caribou herds. While you tour the many parks and trails,
be sure to pay a visit to famous Nahanni National Park. Couples
who enjoy romantic seclusion in the great outdoors may wish to take a
quiet canoe trip or a hike... or in the winter, snowmobiling and dog-sled
tours are other favourites.
The Northwest Territories is also famous for its brilliant displays
of the Aurora Borealis. Also known as the Northern Lights,
these streaks and swirls of light can be seen in the night sky from
fall through winter. It's an awesome display that's sure to live long
in your memories.
Experience Canada's North for a unique romantic escape, one filled
with memories of natural wonders few ever see!
