WHAT IS THE WINTER LIKE IN THE NWT?
NWT winters are full of long days playing on frozen lakes, exploring snowy trails, and gazing up at the dancing aurora borealis! On average, temperatures across the north can range from -15°C to -40°C between October – April, and the days are shorter and darker in the winter months (during the summer, the days are long and bright).
Popular activities include: snowshoeing, cross country skiing, dog sledding, snowmobiling, ice fishing, festivals, pond hockey, and much more!
The key to enjoying winter in the north is dressing warmly and embracing the wild and beautiful scenery that surrounds our communities.
