January/February 2019

New year, new adventures—that's what was on our minds as we put together the January/February travel issue. This issue showcases some of our most breathtaking landscapes that will no doubt inspire your own adventures. Also, this issue includes a profile of the curling stars of the Koe family and a month-by-month guide to unique events across the North in 2019.

Previous Issues

Explore what lies beneath us North of 60. Our November issue features stories on the lost mining town of Pine Point, NWT, a look at the age-old technique of placer mining that's still used in the Yukon today, and a comprehensive report on mining projects up North. Plus: Yukon’s fossil miners, where to find sapphires, jade, and other gemstones in the three territories, and a look at an ancient Arctic city.  

This month, dive into the Northern arts scene, with stories on famous NWT fashion designer D'arcy Moses, a Yellowknife composer using the ice of Great Slave Lake an inspiration for her next opus, fiddling lore of the Arctic, and a failed pottery experimient in Rankin Inlet, Nunavut in the 1960s. Also: get the breakdown on the music, film and literature scene by territory, check out a leaning tower of meat in Fort Providence and thumb your way through some great Northern ghost stories. 

See what it's like to live in all three territorial capitals, or strike it off on your own and discover life in the many small communities dotting the Northwest Territories, Yukon and Nunavut. You'll also learn a couple of important "c-words" in the North: consultation and consensus, courtesy of Tim Edwards and Herb Mathisen. Keep an eye out for a few more Northern political tidbits in this issue too, in light of the upcoming election(s). 

We look into what today's Northern explorers are trying to find, chat with some of the custodians of the NWT's territorial parks, and dive in to the wild world of Northern aviation. Eva Holland takes us into the fray of the battle for the Peel watershed, digesting four days of courtroom hullabaloo (or, as close as you can get to that in a courtroom). Then the editors take a lunch break feeling out food trucks North of 60. 

The Hudson's Bay Company has faded from the Northern landscape. Mining communities commemorate their early history through theatre. As we look back at how the North has changed, we visit photo albums from the 1970s. And looking ahead, we map what it'll take to bring Nunavut online--and offer a cheeky (but educated) glimpse at the North in the year 2100. 

We list off 101 ways to catch, cook and cash in on the world's coolest fish. Also this month, we'll show you where and how to get a job in the North and explain the hype surrounding the North's morel mushroom gold rush. 

May 2015

Are tiny homes might be the next big thing in the North? Also this month, the unknown side of Northern architecture (we don't all live in iglus), and the best ways Northerns are finding to make money.

April 2015

We get up close with the North's birds and beasts (and live to tell the tale). Also this month, on the road with marathoner and former drug-addict Caribou Legs and the inside scoop on Inuit-style poker.

Don't fear the winter: we'll show you how to enjoy the ice and snow before its gone. Also this month, searching to uncover the mystery of the Tuniit people and tales of the trail of the Yukon Cowboy.

We went searching for Northern love stories just in time for Valentines Day. Also this month, we try to untangle the messy political struggle for the North Pole and explore some of the NWT's most incredible locales with trips to the Sahtu, Kluane, and Cambridge Bay.
