Experience the Northwest Territories with Indigenous-owned and operated businesses

The Northwest Territories is a place of enduring landscapes and timeless beauty. Across the territory, the variety of spectacular experiences is only matched by the vibrant and unique cultures of the Indigenous people who have called it home since time immemorial.

These operators are all Indigenous and run businesses that are members of the Indigenous Tourism Association of Canada. Visiting the Northwest Territories will always be memorable, but an authentic experience with an Indigenous operator will elevate your time here like nothing else.
