Region: NWT – Boating License
The spectacular Northwest Territories of Canada is an amazing region. It offers boaters an incredible array of exhilarating opportunities. It really does have something for everyone, regardless of where the interests lie: yachts, powerboats, jet skis, sailboats, fishing and more. One of the Northwest Territories most legendary draws is the Great Bear Lake, which is the largest lake entirely within the Canadian border, and the third largest lake in North America. Dotted with numerous small to medium-sized islands, Great Bear Lake empties through the Great Bear River into the Mackenzie. This is true wilderness, and it holds particular allure for the boater who wants an ultimate experience.
The Northwest Territories is an area that boaters go to get away from it all. It is one of those magical places where you boat, fish, camp and totally remove yourself from the activities and complexities of modern life. However, the Northwest Territories also boasts a great range of lakes and rivers that provide boaters a more conventional experience. In fact, there is a wide array of adventure outfits, fishing outfits, lodges, marinas, charters and so forth. Visitors to the Northwest Territories can rent, long-term lease or bring their own boat, motorboat, yacht, sailboat, kayak, canoe, inflatable raft and so on. In many areas of the Northwest Territories, you can experience all these things and more from a single location, and most popular NT travel packages base themselves on this concept.
