Reviews Yellowknife

Level 100
Overall rating: 6
Yellowknife is at its best in the winter season. The Championship Dog Derby at the end of March is a 3-day long festivity with champion canines participating. You can even try driving a team of racing dogs yourself, or hop on to a snowmobile and take a long trip through the snow-covered trees.
The city is one of the best places in the region to see the Aurora Borealis, or the ‘Northern Lights’. The varying shades of green, red and orange will leave you with an unforgettable image. Try watching the spectacle from the Bush Pilot's Monument with its 360° view.
The mid-July ... More Folk on the Rocks Festival in a sandy lakeside amphitheatre and the Caribou Festival in the last week of March, are popular tourist attractions in Yellowknife.
Other must-visits include the 65-km Ingraham Trail, with its hiking trails, camping and boats on the lakes, and the Yellowknife Cultural Crossroads, which is a rock face bearing a traditionally-crafted drum and raven.

Yellowknife, home to the 2008 Arctic Winter Games, is the capital city of the Northwest Territories in Canada, just 500 km south of the Arctic Circle. It lies on the shores of the Great Slave Lake, west of the Yellowknife River, in the Mackenzie District.
The city has a semi-arid sub artic climate, with an average temperature of 26°C. As it lies in the rain shadow of mountains in the west, it receives less than 300 mm of precipitation in a year. January and February are the coldest, snow-filled months with the thermometer settling at –40°C.
Yellowknife has a population ... More of nearly 20,000 people. It gets its name from the Yellowknives tribe that used to be widespread in the region. The city has a flourishing diamond and gold mining industry which has substantially contributed to its commercial revenue.

Winter: Must see the aurora borealis and go dog sledding. Check out the Black Knight Pub (local hanging, great service and great food). Summer check out Cameron Falls and fishing. Stay away during the spring break up and fall freeze up as the ferry is not in to cross the river and all the garbage is coming out of the melting snow. Great community and safe.
