By Air


Canadian North is our Official Carrier, and they carry our highest recommendation. Canadian North and its founding companies (CAI, PWA, Transair, Nordair) have served the North for over 75 years. This airline, 100% owned by Aboriginals, is a striving healthy company that provides superior service to all northerners including the over 30,000 shareholders (Inuvialuit and Inuit of Nunavut) that own it.

By Road

Photo(c) Maia Lepage, 2014The Dempster Highway takes you across the Great Divide, over three mountain ranges, across the Arctic Circle and by ferry over the mighty Mackenzie River. Every summer hundreds of adventurers drive up the highway using vehicles from huge luxury R.V.s to bicycles. Whether you choose a driving holiday or take advantage of Canadian North's seat sale during our Festival, travel above the Arctic Circle is an experience you should not miss!

Perhaps the most comprehensive guide to road travel in the North is MilePost - a virtual encyclopedia of information on arctic road travel, encompassing Alaska, Yukon Territory, Northwest Territory, and Northern British Columbia. Any traveller heading our way would do well to have a copy onboard.

If you are planning to make the trip by road, make sure you contact NWT Tourism and request the "Road Touring Guide"!
