Welcome to Spectacular NWT Travel Media.

Catch a trophy fish in the pristine waters of our Northern great lakes. Paddle through the great canyons of the Nahanni, or rush headlong into the whitewater of the Slave River. Enjoy road trips that take you farther than anywhere else (ever wanted to see the Arctic Ocean?), or simply stand in awe under the swirling lights and colours of the best Aurora on the planet. Just remember to breathe from time to time.

If you are interested in shooting a film in the NWT the NWT Film Commission can help. They have staff who can be your liaison through every phase of your production. Please contact:

  • Dark mountain spires pierce the fog against a steely sky, making Nahanni National Park seem more akin to Mordor than Canada. The park can only be accessed by boat or floatplane by intrepid travelers seeking to conquer the rapids of the Nahanni River or summit the formidable Cirque of the Unclimbables. Its impenetrable forest and mountains may be the primary reason Nahanni sees limited visitors, but perhaps it’s also because the park is shrouded in macabre legends befitting of its menacing landscape.

  • It’s the very definition of a wild road trip. Here, the highways wind through a boundless Northern wilderness, where herds of hulking bison block traffic. Pull over whenever you feel the urge and cast for quick-biting Northern Pike in innumerable roadside creeks, rivers, and lakes. Dig your toes into the sand on the shores of a great Canadian lake, before a short stroll takes you to your clean, comfortable campsite. Follow the roaring echo from just off the highway to watch a mighty river that tumbles over the side of the cliff.
