Living in the Northwest Territories means there are opportunities for adventure everywhere you look. Whether you love to explore the great outdoors or want to experience the unique cultures and lifestyle of the NWT, there is no shortage of options.
When you work with NTPC, you won't need to get out of town for the weekend to enjoy activities like fishing, boating, snowmobiling or cross-country skiing. Adventure is right outside your back door.
Winter and the NWT go hand-in-hand. It may get cold here, but that doesn't mean you have to stay indoors. For an easy adventure, step onto your deck to watch the northern lights. Or take a short trip out of town away from the streetlights for an even better view.
Snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, dog sledding, ice fishing and kite skiing are all popular activities in the winter, and with plenty of room to explore you'll never have to visit the same place twice. For those days when you don't feel like going outside, there is a variety of indoor sports to choose from as well.
The NWT's summers are so good that most northerners wouldn't want be anywhere else in the world. The days seem to last forever, with fantastic weather and sunshine well into the night. All that sunlight means lots of time for hiking, golfing, boating and canoeing, just to name a few options.
If fishing is your thing, you'll be right at home. Visitors pay big money to experience pulling in trophy-size fish from our pristine waters. Living in the NWT means countless lakes and rivers… and trophies… are always nearby.
Some visitors also pay for the once-in-a-lifetime experience of hunting in the NWT. But resident hunters can enjoy the experience regularly.
Visit the Department of Environment and Natural Resources website for information on regulations, licensing and more.
Northerners also love to go camping. With nearly 40 parks and campgrounds in the NWT, not to mention plenty of wide-open wilderness, it's easy to find that perfect spot.
