Share the exuberant spirit of Yellowknife, Diamond Capital of North America™. The capital of the Northwest Territories is a little city with big city amenities, with a population from more than 90 countries.
The city glitters like a diamond year round. In summer, Great Slave Lake beckons, luring fishers and boaters, while festivals and events take centre stage. By autumn, the night sky begins to sparkle with the world’s most awe-inspiring displays of northern lights. The entertainment scene heats up, and it’s time to shop for Canadian Arctic diamonds, just 300 km from their source.
By winter, Yellowknife’s world turns snow white and dark nights sparkle under the Northern Lights. Dog teams and snowmobiles explore the snow covered landscape, while visitors curl up in luxury at winter lodges to watch the Aurora. Yellowknife’s colours return in spring. Out on the lake there are dog races and foot races, an ice palace, and kite skiing on spectacular Great Slave Lake.
