A True Northern Feast

Eating fish fresh from the lake in the northern wilderness is almost decadent. No five star restaurant can ever match such spectacular flavours. There's plenty of opportunity for a northern feast of fish in the Northwest Territories. Trout are delicious, of course, but northern pike have a firm white flesh that cooks perfectly, wrapped in foil over a small fire on a deserted beach. Arctic char is an exotic luxury in many parts of the northern world. NWT residents tend to favour whitefish and pickerel. These are the fish that sell out first at our hotels and restaurants. Our guests also can sample more exotic fare. A special northern meal might include moose, muskox, ptarmigan, or bison served with wild tundra berries. Whether it’s a snack on a boat, or a full spread in a lodge or restaurant, the meals of the Northwest Territories will tempt your appetite.
