•  Welcome North of 60  •

There’s a land where the mountains are nameless,
And the rivers all run God knows where;
There are lives that are erring and aimless,
And deaths that just hang by a hair;
There are hardships that nobody reckons;
There are valleys unpeopled and still;
There’s a land - oh, it beckons and beckons,
And I want to go back - and I will.

From "The Spell of the Yukon" by Robert W. Service

About this site

This site is dedicated to the land and the people north of 60. It is meant to shed some light onto the one or other corner of Canada’s back of beyond. For those who are planning to go and those who share an interest in the North but cannot go have a look for themselves.

It appears indeed rather presumptuous to attempt to capture Canada’s Northland, which is said to be "Larger Than Life" according to the Yukon Tourism Board, with an apparatus the size of a pack of cigarettes. There's just so much that the camera simply can't convey. But nevertheless: A picture still says more than a thousand words. And a panorama offers more than just the addition of its individual frames. To view a panorama, you may like to use the full screen button in the menu. The files behind most panoramas are large enough to zoom in moderately. Depending on your bandwidth, you may have to wait a second or two for a sharp image to appear on your screen as you scroll.

If you have got comments or questions please send an e-mail to Carsten@northof60.de.
