Deep histories and rich traditions

A visit to the Northwest Territories is a different sort of journey – it’s a pilgrimage, a form of time-travel, an out-of-body experience. Here, you’ll interact with a rich tapestry of peoples, practicing lifeways firmly anchored in the ancient earth. Here, you’ll drive off the map, motoring to places that will widen your eyes and pacify your soul. Here, you’ll fly over a terrain as old as creation and as new as the most recent flood, the latest passage of caribou, the newest bloom. Give yourself over to the Northwest Territories, and you will return forever changed.
