    On a small hill in the old town. See the Yellowknife, helpful. I thought I had come this far.

    Go and check this place out! I was happy I didn't leave my camera in the car. The views of the houseboat community are amazing.  more »

    If you want a 360 view of Yellowknife, this is the place. Breathtaking view of Yellowknife Bay , the boat houses and bush planes. You can see all of the city.  more »

    A must see of you are in Yellowknife! It has a great view of Old Town, as well as the harbour and also parts of downtown Yellowknife. Just need to climb some stairs to get there, and there is a ton of pieces of glass on the rocks, but other than that it is golden!

    The best view of the town and the water. You get a real feel for the old days. Many of the historical sites have descriptions as you look out over the particular spot.

    Great views of the bays and the town. It was not busy when I went though the rest of the town seemed to be and we watched the sun set.

Where to stay in Yellowknife

Accommodations in Yellowknife come in the form of small hotels, bed and breakfasts, and guesthouses scattered throughout the city. For the most interesting scenery, stay north of the center near the Bush Pilots Monument. If you choose to visit between November and March to chase the northern lights, make sure you stay well out of town for the best chance to see the spectacle without the intrusion of light pollution.
