Northern Canada Tourism & Visitor Guide
Welcome to Northern Canada!Northern Canada is one of the few genuinely untamed and untouched landscapes in Canada and offers adventure opportunities that can only be found in this vast area. Shaped by rich Aboriginal traditions and often harsh weather conditions, Northern Canada is a truly unique destination, where cold winters give way to long hours of daylight in the summer months, leading to an insurgence of blooming wildflowers. At night, colourful northern lights dance along the mountainous horizon. While in the Yukon, follow the trail of brave Klondike Gold Rush explorers by visiting historic Dawson City. During a visit to the Northwest Territories, explore the natural beauty of Nahanni National Park and World Heritage Site, which is home to Virginia Falls, a powerful 90 m (295 ft) aquatic spectacle that is twice the height of Niagara Falls. Discover Inuit-inspired architecture in Iqaluit, the capital city of Nunavut. The extraordinary people of Canada's newest territory are particularly well-known for producing fine authentic Inuit arts and crafts, especially carvings.
