Yukon & the Northwest Territories

Take a scenic flight over the Yukon

The Yukon and the Northwest Territories represent Canada’s wild frontier, offering rugged landscapes and a colourful history of Inuits, traders and gold prospectors.

The population is small, the landscape vast and the wildlife prolific – here you may be lucky enough to see caribou, moose and grizzly bears throughout both territories. The human inhabitants of these remote lands are a fascinating mix of First Nations people, descendants of intrepid pioneers and adventurers, each with their own fascinating story to share.

The major cities of Whitehorse in the Yukon and Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories offer all the amenities you would expect, whilst Dawson City is forever synonymous with the Klondike Gold Rush. All retain a close-community feel and are just minutes from the surrounding wilderness. From these cities you can easily access nearby national parks, mountains, lakes and rivers; try your hand at dog-sledding or snowmobiling and marvel at majestic displays of the northern lights overhead.

Iconic landmarks such as the Dempster Highway, Tombstone National Park and Great Slave Lake evoke images of one of the world’s last unspoiled wilderness regions. With uncrowded roads and a warm friendly welcome, here you really can get right off the beaten track and immerse yourself into the wild beauty of Canada.

Over our two full days on the Tundra Buggies we encountered at least 60 bears - some with cubs, others sparring but most just lounging around waiting for the ice to form!
