Furthest North is a twice-annual furry camping trip and convention that was founded in 2001 by Boar-Ral and has since been held in Alberta, Canada. It was originally called the West Canadian Furry Campout, and was changed to Furthest North after it was discussed that "FURther North" was already in use.

Furthest North Winter usually takes place during the Alberta Family Day long weekend in February, while Furthest North Summer occurs during the August Civic Holiday long weekend.
