North Slave

The North Slave is a place of opposites: 

A vast lake and the rock-ribbed shield. Dense boreal forests and the wide-open Barrenlands. Ultra-modern industries and lifeways older than history.

Here you’ll find the fabled East Arm of Great Slave, home to plunging shore cliffs, profound blue depths, supersized sportfish and celebrated wilderness lodges – all soon to be protected as Thaidene Nene National Park. Also in the North Slave: legendary paddling rivers like the Thelon, their banks patrolled by caribou and muskoxen; the North Arm of Great Slave, with sparkling Caribbean waters and feisty pike; and the frozen highways to Canada’s first diamond mines, made famous on Ice Road Truckers.     

Finally, the North Slave is the home of the Tłįchǫ, the Chipewyan and Yellowknives Dene. Dwelling in six deeply traditional communities, there’s no better place to immerse yourself in the calm, rooted culture of the North.
