Parts of Canada’s taiga (mostly plains and shield forests), Taiga Cordillera mountains, and Arctic tundra. Major lakes include Great Slave Lake (deepest in North America) and Great Bear Lake (largest lake fully within Canada).
I can’t wait to go to Wood Buffalo National Park someday. Apparently, it’s also an incredible thing to go to Yellowknife when the summer solstice happens. I hope to do that next summer. Probably true for the winter solstice too
That would be a great road trip. I read they have really interesting festivals and celebrations centered on the First Nations heritage in Yellowknife. Plus the nature up there looks ridiculously gorgeous
I would love to see those festivals too!
