Come North, for the experience of a lifetime!
The Northwest Territories encompasses a third of the land mass of Canada, some 3,300,000 square kilometres. It stirs the soul and captures the imagination; vast, unspoiled, diverse, and unforgettable. The Northwest Territories is a land of geographic wonders and infinite naturalist opportunities.It is a remarkable area some 1.3 million square miles in size that can, happily, still boast of clean air and pristine waterways, wide open spaces and an abundance of extraordinary wildlife and unusual plant life. This massive region has come to be recognised as one of the last great refuges left on this planet.
Caribou number in the hundreds of thousands in the Northwest Territories and provide a mainstay in the diet of the local people.
Few memories can compare with your first view of a herd of caribou. A sense of unreality prevails as you realize their sheer numbers. The land itself seems to move, a tide of life flowing across the tundra. And they do flow, moving at a fast walk, occasionally breaking into a troat, grazing briefly here and there, then marching on.
