How do I get to Yellowknife from Alberta?

Is Yellowknife a good place to visit?

  • Yellowknife is a heck of a long way from anywhere, but if you’re up for an adventurous and loooooong road trip (like 15ish hours from Edmonton) then go for it. Yellowknife is pretty small and easy to get around. Taxis are readily available at the airport and around town, and many tours include pick up from your accommodation.

How do you get to Yellowknife by boat?

  • Yellowknife is on the Great Slave Lake; boating to and in Yellowknife is private in nature (ferries are used as highway river crossings, however). There are docks in the Old Town area; one could presumably go across the lake to Hay River, Buffalo River, Dawson Landing, or Edzo in a private boat.

Is Yellowknife the land of the Midnight Sun?

  • Propellers whirring, the plane descended for the final leg of my travel to Yellowknife, affectionately known as the Land of the Midnight Sun.
