Northern myths: "The North is too far away"
Think the Northwest Territories is too distant to visit? That's not even close to being correct. We're less than two hours by air from Edmonton, Alberta. Other direct flights serve the territory from Ottawa, Calgary and Whitehorse.
Wanna drive here? In a secnic daylong roadtrip you can reach the Northwest Territories from Edmonton. Even quicker road detours will get you here from northern B.C. (via the Liard Highway) or the Yukon (via the Dempster HIghway).
