Driving the Northwest Territories is like going back in time with far more scenery and wildlife on the roads than traffic. During the warm months of summer, CAMPER-ers can watch the sunset melt into a golden sunrise as there's up to 24 hours of daylight in June, July and the beginning of August! And that’s good, because there’s so much to do! The 6 parks of the Northwest Territories, including Wood Buffalo and Nahanni, protect some of the finest scenery and wildlife. There are raging rivers and quiet streams, towering peaks, and vast plains and tundra where bison, caribou and muskoxen still roam untamed. And then there are the waterfalls. The two-tiered Louise Falls in the Hay River Gorge, serene Lady Evelyn Falls, where grayling leap in the spray, thundering 32-metre Alexandra Falls, and furious Sambaa Deh Falls. Earth-shaking Virginia Falls is twice the height of Niagara and the plum of Nahanni National Park Reserve.
Whether it’s the woods, the wildlife, or the colourful locals whose traditions remain vibrantly alive, what you’ll witness on a Northwest Territories camping trip is the real deal.
