01   Aurora Borealis

Yellowknife is the best place in the world to view the aurora borealis. With its long winter lights, early December to the beginning of April is a great time of the year for travellers to go for a visit. Late summer to early autumn also offers good chance of seeing the Northern Lights.

02   Snowmobiling

Get ready for a full-throttle excitement at the North. Try getting on a snowmobile while exploring icy trails and frozen lakes across the boundless Arctic. Some lodges and cabins provide rental snowmobiling equipment while we have them included in optional activities. This is the perfect rush of adrenaline for the thrill-seekers.

03   Winter Icefishing

In Yellowknife, the fishing season doesn’t end when the waters freeze. It is the chance to take part in age-old tradition of ice fishing in the Northwest Territories. The old ways of doing things taste just as delicious.

04   Dogsledding

Dogsledding tours in the Northwest Territories are great addition to your winter actions - part pristine wilderness tour, part exhilarating winter adventure. The Arctic backcountry offers sled dogs a nearly endless space to run wild, pulling you along for the adventure of a lifetime. When you get a chance to meet the dogs, you’ll find they are friendly, loveable, and above all, extremely lively. Dogsledding across the Arctic makes you feel like something out of a storybook, and it’s definitely an experience you shouldn’t miss.

05   Classic Snowshoeing

Snowshoeing is a timeless and iconic way of travelling through the snowy Canadian winter. In the Yellowknife, this tradition lives on. People snowshoe recreationally on winter hikes, but it is also still the most efficient way to walk over deep snow out to a cozy cabin, secluded fire pit, or out into an unbroken field of snow to see the spectacular Northern Lights.
