It’s a legendary land blessed with towering peaks, blanketed with dense forest and teeming with roaming giants. It’s home to warm hearts, smiling faces and outsized stories. And the Mackenzie River runs through it all. Fortunately, so does the Deh Cho Connection—a highway route that takes you through the scenic southern Northwest Territories.

Here’s what awaits you along a truly wild highway this summer.

There’s a secret among Northerners in the NWT – yes, for much of the year the territory is chilly with frozen lakes and blanketed in snow, but there’s a region that heats up quicker than the rest of the territory, maybe even quicker than the rest of the country. We’re talking about the Banana Belt of the North – the Dehcho.
