The North of Canada is a subarctic region with sparse population. They are some of the most remote regions on Earth, with vast landscapes and plenty of nature and wildlife to observe. It is also home to the Inuit and several First Nations and is rich in natural resources.

Understand

The North of Canada is a vast area made up of many different environments; ranging from boreal forest, to mountains, to subarctic all the way to high arctic. This is one of the remote places on Earth and even the vast majority of Canadians will never visit the region, however people still live here in one of the most unique places of Canada. Travel here is extremely difficult and expensive. Most will want to visit during the summer when the territories arent shrouded in near constant darkness, snow and freezing temperatures (to put it lightly). However for those with the funds and motivation, visiting the North of Canada can be an extremely rewarding experience.
