Yukon's capital city calls itself Canada's Wilderness City. Situated on the banks of the Yukon River, the community is home to 25,000 locals. A goldrush brought travellers from around the world. They were hoping to get rich quick. That frontier, hell-bent-for-leather attitude lives on.
Yellowknife, Northwest Territories
Yellowknife calls itself the Aurora Capital of North America. They aren't referring to a Disney princess. They are talking about that breathtaking natural phenomenon - the Northern Lights. Dazzling dancing lights paint the night sky above the city during the long northern winter.
The youngest northern capital is Iqaluit. It was chosen to be the capital of the new territory Nunavut in 1995. Nunavut came into existence on April 1, 1999. On the 19th, Iqaluit was officially declared a city. Iqaluit is the only Northern capital located on the ocean - to be exact on Frobisher Bay, a saltwater bay with the second highest tides in the world.
