Where to stay in Northwest Territories

Hotels

Although most large towns have hotels and bed & breakfast establishments open all year, accommodation can be scarce and often quite basic. There can be long distances between settlements of any size, especially in the Arctic zone. Lodges designed for outdoor activity holidays can be found in most settlements, although many can only be reached by air.

Camping

Campsites are generally open from mid May to mid September and are run by both government and private organisations. Some outfitters have established 'outposts' (semi-permanent camps), with tents, beds and meals usually offered as part of organised trips. Camping is on a 'leave no trace' basis. A number of companies can arrange motorhome (known as recreational vehicles, or RVs, in Canada) hire, with a range of fully equipped vehicles.
