Exploring Yellowknife


Yellowknife is a city of contrasts and vibrancy. With a population just under 20,000 and one of the youngest populations in the country, it maintains the friendliness of a small town and the opportunity and energy of a metropolis.

With shimmering aurora borealis (Northern Lights) about 240 days per year, numerous lakes, walking trails, and a plethora of community events, there is always something new to experience in Our Yellowknife.
