Northern Canada

All of these items are taken from this book: The Great Northern Canada Bucket List by Robin Esrock. I love this book and the series covers so many things about Canada. Now this will be both a review of the book as well as making a list of the things that you should see in the Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut . If you click on the photo you will be take to the Amazon page for this book.


Now before I begin I purchased this book myself and decided to review it myself.



Having done my own exploration of the Yukon and my parents having done the Dempster Highway all the way to the Inuvik, in the Northwest Territories. I found that this book is amazing in that regard and does a really good job on selling a road trip to the North. I have not done any travelling into Nunavut but it is definitely on my list. Again does not include prices but with prices changing like crazy that is preferred.
