Top things to do
Take a stroll through Old Town and snap some photos of its ramshackle shacks and eclectic architecture.
For a memorable dining experience visit the Wildcat Café, a vintage log structure and the oldest restaurant in Yellowknife. Find a seat on the sunny patio to watch floatplanes take off and land on Back Bay.
Head over to Old Town Glassworks to pick up a souvenir sandblasted glass made from a recycled wine bottle. Better yet, sign up for a workshop and create your own.
Treat yourself to some of the best fish and chips in the country at Bullock’s Bistro. The fish are often pulled from Great Slave Lake the very same day.
For unique accommodations, rent a houseboat to experience an authentic Yellowknife experience.
