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.
