About Yellowknife, Northwest Territories

Located at 62.5 degrees North latitude, Yellowknife is the capital city of the Northwest Territories. With three diamond mines nearby, it is also known as the Diamond Capital of North America. Yellowknife is a small-but-unique town of about 18,000 people located on the shore of Great Slave Lake. This lake is one of the world’s largest fresh-water bodies of water.

Yellowknife is probably the best place to view one of the Earth’s greatest natural wonders, the Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights. That’s because the area experiences more clear nights than other Northern locations. Amazing Aurora displays are possible on over 240 nights each year! It’s easy to see why every year thousands of visitors come to Yellowknife to see the Aurora.

Aside from the natural beauty of the Aurora Borealis, there are plenty of other activities to choose from. We take pride in being one of the world’s best winter cities. Winter activities include dog sledding, snowmobiling, and ice fishing. Yellowknife is also the winter home of the world-famous Ice Road Truckers television show. In the summer, enjoy the magical midnight sun and catch yourself a giant Northern Pike fish, take a boat ride or go bird watching. During every activity, you will experience your own unique adventure in our pristine Northern environment.
