At Yellowknife, the great outdoors, diamonds and a front row seat for the northern lights are the prime attractions.
A three to five day visit might include a day tour on Great Slave Lake to see wildlife, or to fish, a tour of the museum and the NWT Legislative Assembly, a walk around Frame Lake, a tour of Old Town, shopping for diamonds and crafts, and a trip on the Ingraham Trail.
In winter, displays of the northern lights can be truly spectacular. Choose a three day package including city tour, dogsled ride and a trip on the ice road. Or fly out to a winter lodge in the Boreal forest.
