Old Town, Yellowknife

4.1
Go back in time at Old Town, featuring 1930s buildings that include private homes and miners' shacks. See the monument dedicated to the bush pilots of the area, and don't miss the gift shop where you can find some traditional souvenirs like pottery, carved items, and other examples of local artistry. After your tour, take a break at one of the cafes or restaurants, ideal for trying local beers and sampling some regional cuisine. Plan my Yellowknife trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • Very quiet but clean and it is obvious that the residents care about their neighbourhood. Full of history and the ice road is really interesting.  more »
  • I walked downtown. So far did not go hard in the world below the freezing point of tens of minutes is not something there is not what the average fun walk. Even the atmosphere of the old town.
