Northern Canada, also known as The North, consists of Canada’s three territories: Northwest Territories, Yukon, and Nunavut. The North is located in the northernmost part of the nation. This is the place where you will find the most iconic polar bears, seal huntsman, icebergs, igloos, and the ever so famous Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights.
The Northwest Territories is an island that vaguely resembles that of a rhombus shape and houses two of Canada’s largest lakes, the Great Slave and the Great Bear.
Yukon is best known for its mineral deposits, specifically gold, and this is actually where the Klondike gold rush took place. Due to the remoteness of the places and the cold arctic weather, the resources were not properly exploited, and thus the place was not properly developed. Yukon is also considered a great place to have road trips, with scenic routes from every corner and majestic sites that can only be seen here.
Despite Nunavut being in the northernmost part of Canada with freezing cold weather, it is still one of the best tourist destinations that Canada has to offer. Here you will be able to experience the true North, see the amazing Northern Lights, get close to the arctic wilderness, and see for yourself some Inuit culture and artworks.
