This is a real water world

If you're only getting around on the land, you're missing almost half of the Northwest Territories. Home to two of the biggest freshwater lakes in the world, plus countless smaller lakes and rivers and creeks, water is just about everywhere you look in the North. After all, the best views come from the vantage point of a boat or canoe.

If you're not a paddler, or you're looking for a faster way to get around the lakes, check out a boat tour. See islands and lands that aren't accessible by road, keep an eye out for wildlife like majestic bald eagles, moose, or bears, and maybe drop a line into the water to catch your dinner.
