Half the Fun is Getting Here

The journey North is part of the total NWT travel experience. 

Road travellers can watch the landscape change from sandy river valleys to rocky Precambrian Shield, to scenic mountains and coastal plains.  And air travellers can access the NWT from the gateway cities of Calgary, Edmonton and Ottawa on one of the three regional or two national airlines that provide convenient jet service.
