  • It can be said that landed by plane close to the pioneer monument, Yellowknife began from here. It is pleasant, unlike urban and upscale residential areas. Explore the popular restaurants, souvenir shop and if you have time could be better in. Yellowknife Centre takes 20 minutes. You can take any bus.
