Flightseeing

See the North from above

Fly away with northern airlines to some of the finest wilderness scenery on earth. Regional and local airlines offer a variety of amazing day trips and packages for visitors to the Northwest Territories. Fly in to the western mountains and picnic at a World Heritage Site, fabulous Virginia Falls in Nahanni National Park Reserve. Trace the Canol route, fly over the Mackenzie Delta, or fly out from Yellowknife to take the measure of one of the largest lakes in the world.
