Welcome North! ExploreNorth is the world's largest Web site that focusses on travel in, and the history of, Alaska, the Yukon Territory, Northwest Territories and northern British Columbia. The site currently (January 2017) consists of 30,698 files (approximately 5,600 pages) taking up 2.25GB of space.

    The thousands of pages of information rely heavily on photography, both historic and current, to share our passion for this region.

    The site is constantly being worked on, and the community and highway guides that are an important part of the site for many of our readers are the sections currently being re-designed and re-written.
