Listed under Road Trips in Northwest Territory, Canada.

Pin It

The landscape is spectacular, to say the least, with a huge range of wildlife living in the hills and forests that surround the road. Because of its extreme northern location, Dempster will remain in the sunshine for days on end during certain parts of the Arctic summer.
