Enterprise

Population: 122

Scenically situated beside the Hay River canyon at the junction of Highways 1 and 2, this settlement is the gateway to the South Slave. Just 83 kilometers north of the NWT border, and within hiking-and-biking distance of Louise and Alexandra Falls, it’s the first place North of 60 to get gas, groceries, a motel room, a restaurant meal, or shop for local arts and crafts.
