Welcome to Norman Wells!

Located in the MacKenzie Valley, bordered by the Rocky Mountains and the massive MacKenzie River, Norman Wells is a remote village with a population of less than 1,000. Those who make the journey to the little town in the Northwest Territories will be rewarded with impressive scenery and a wealth of outdoor pursuits. Canoeing, kayaking and fishing are only a few of the activities to undertake on the MacKenzie River and The Norman Wells Ski Club maintains 40 km (25 mi) of marked trails, including 25 km (15.5 mi) that are well-groomed, in and around the town, giving locals and visitors the opportunity to snowshoe and cross-country ski. The rugged Canol Heritage Trail, which follows an oil pipeline used during the Second World War and was shut down shortly afterwards, gives visitors a chance to explore the north on foot. Celebrate First Nations heritage during the festivities surrounding National Aboriginal Day, or bring home a souvenir from the MacKenzie River Gallery, which displays the work of First Nations artists.
