Explore Pike's Portage, the ancient gateway between Great Slave and the tundra beyond.
The Northwest Territories is home to five national parks (soon to be six). Here, rivers run glassy-clear, peaks leap to the heavens, waterfalls plummet and wild beasts abound – muskoxen, caribou, grizzlies, bison, you name it. Some of our parks, like Nahanni, are legends, on the bucket-list of every adventurer worth their salt. Others are unsung gems – the most untrammeled places on the planet.
National holiday with events in all communities. Contact town offices and check community websites for details.
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.
