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 (December 2015) consists of 27,038 files (approximately 5,300 pages) taking up 1.72GB of space.

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

    A major rebuild is currently underway, and the site search engine is the best way to find much of the information until new navigation is created. In particular, the community and highway guides that are an important part of the site for many of our readers are being re-designed and re-written.
