Only the most adventurous visitors make it to Canada's Northwest Territories, but those who do are rewarded with a taste of one of the world's last great wildernesses. Spanning an area roughly the size of South Africa, but with a population density of just 0.04/sq km (0.10/sq mi), the vast plains of tundra and thick forests feel almost uninhabited. A handful of expansive national parks, featuring massive lakes and spectacular waterfalls, offer incredible scenery and wildlife for those who make the long journey to visit. If you're prepared to brave the arctic cold and take a trip to Northwest Territories during the winter months, you have a great chance of seeing the northern lights at their most spectacular. Northwest Territories is in Canada. With the Inspirock international travel planner, Northwest Territories and other destinations across the globe can be made central to your personalized travel plans.
