Road Tours

Cruise around in style

Most people arrive in the NWT by plane, so all the delights of the road - wildlife, scenic hiking trails, waterfalls - are out of reach if you don't have wheels. Thankfully, there are many tour operators who can take you to see the sights just outside the city or community you're staying in! 

Minibus excursions are available in Inuvik, Yellowknife and Hay River. Day trips offer a view of the mountains north of the Arctic Circle, the Ingraham Trail, the ice roads in season, or wood bison grazing along the highway. Or explore the unique waterfalls of the southern Northwest Territories. If you want to travel by bus, scheduled passenger service links Hay River to Fort Smith, and Hay River to Enterprise, Fort Providence, Behchokǫ̀, and Yellowknife, and Yellowknife to Behchokǫ̀.
