Trans Canada Trail Northwest Territories: Official Guide of the Trans Canada Trail
Jamie Bastedo

Much more than a guidebook, this natural and cultural feast takes you down the wildest, longest stretch of the Trans Canada Trail, from Alberta's far north to the Arctic Ocean. It provides all the nuts and bolts you'll need for your journey- whether on land or in an armchair- including detailed route maps, major landmarks, access points, community facilities, campsites, points of natural and historical interest, recommended side trips, and precautions. It also includes a diverse range of local contributors whose stories capture the unique spirit of each community and culture encountered along the way.

Covering 2300 km of water route and 600 km over land, this book offers many exciting options for you to customize your own trip, whether paddling the mighty Mackenzie River or biking the hinterlands of Yellowknife. Much of the route follows traditional travel corridors used by native people for thousands of years, followed later by European explorers, traders and missionaries. Some portions offer opportunities to see peregrine falcons, grizzly bears or beluga whales. Rockhounds can choose from a wide array of geological treats along the route. Want to catch an arctic grayling? Stroll on the tundra? Swim in the Beaufort Sea? Visit a native culture camp? Follow in the wake of the voyageurs? Paddle across the Arctic Circle? Bike through a herd of wild bison? May your dreams come true on the NWT Trans Canada Trail!

"I have traveled far, across rivers, in the mountains and down river. Life in the bush made me very happy. The land is so beautiful and you can see so far."
- Jimmy Bonnetrouge, Fort Providence, NWT
