Yellowknife Vacation Packages, Tours & Travel Experiences
Resting peacefully on the shores of the vast Great Slave Lake, Yellowknife is the vibrant capital of the Northwest Territories. As the cultural and economic hub for the vast territory, Yellowknife is a modern city with a friendly community spirit, featuring everything you could possibly need in the Great North. Many are surprised at how cosmopolitan the city feels, from a diverse selection of international and regional cuisine to stunning collections of art. A number of eclectic festivals keep locals moving and grooving throughout the year, celebrating uniquely Northern events like ice carving, dogsledding, or dancing all night long under the midnight sun.
Outdoor activities abound in Yellowknife no matter the time of year. As the deepest lake in Canada and one of the largest in the world, Great Slave Lake presents myriad opportunities to be explored, from boating to swimming to paddleboarding in summer. Bush planes soar over the lake, giving you a unique perspective on the forested land and Yellowknife’s rich mining history below. The lake is frozen most of the year, during which you can snowmobile out across its icy surface with a blanket and hot cocoa to carve out your own spot to view the magical Northern Lights. Yellowknife is one of the best cities in the world to view the dancing lights of the Aurora Borealis, which take to the skies in the colder months for an experience you’ll never forget.
