How to get here

By Air

 

 It’s easy to get here by air. Seven airlines link the Northwest Territories to connection points in southern and western Canada.

 

There's daily jet service to Yellowknife from Calgary, Edmonton and Ottawa.  Regular direct flights also connect Edmonton and Calgary to Norman Wells and Inuvik.

 

*Daily direct service between Vancouver and Yellowknife will begin December 15, 2017 until April 1, 2018 with Air Canada.

 

Yellowknife is our busiest airport and serves as the hub for jet service to and from the South – and a connection point for almost all flights in and out of our Territory.

 

From Yellowknife, most NWT communities are only a short flight away on smaller regional airlines or you can travel by jet to destinations in the high arctic and Nunavut.

By Road

 

Four highways link our northern communities to the Yukon, British Columbia and Alberta.

 

A number of our highways are intersected by rivers that must be crossed by ferry (no charge) or ice road.  Remember, crossings are not always possible during periods of the spring and fall, so check conditions and hours of operation in advance.  

 

Each winter, a network of winter roads is added to our permanent highways. They extend northwards to service mines and the communities without permanent roads. Winter roads are usually open from mid-January to late March, but that can vary with weather conditions.

 

Daily reports on all NWT highways, ice roads and ferries are posted on line - or call 1-800-661-0750.
