Welcome North! ExploreNorth is the world's largest Web site that focusses on travel in, and the history of, Alaska, the Yukon, the Northwest Territories and northern British Columbia. The site currently (January 2022 consists of over 24,000 files (approximately 4,300 pages) taking up 4.6 GB of space. As well, the companion ExploreNorth Blog which we started on April 25, 2006, has 1,468 posts with over 21,000 photos.

    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.
