The Northwest Territories is a flightseeing paradise. From here, aerial tours glide off in all directions, with stunning landmarks and wild beasts providing a spectacle from above. Buzz over the glorious East Arm of Great Slave Lake, gaze upon galloping herds of bison in Wood Buffalo National Park, ogle the stately peaks of the Mackenzie Range, or soar over the unpeopled Barrens where caribou rule the land.
Flying in a small plane is cool. Landing on water? Even cooler. If we could pick just one vehicle to use for the rest of our life, it would be a floatplane. If you’ve never been in one, this is the place to have your first floatplane experience.
Runways? We don't need no stinkin' runways! Just strap a set of skis on a Twin Otter and you've got the ultimate go-anywhere flying machine. Ski planes are ubiquitous in the Northwest Territories. You can charter one to take a sightseeing tour, skimming low over our winter wonderland. Ski planes are also a great way to get out to Aurora-viewing lodges. So buckle up and prepare to catch some air.
Experience that feeling when you wave goodbye to the bush plane and you realize you're all alone. It's like the weight of the modern world lifts from your shoulders, setting you truly free.
