Things to do in the
Northwest Territories

The Northwest Territories is one of the planet's most spectacular and awe-inspiring destinations. Yellowknife is an eclectic city boasting music festivals, charming houseboats, a frontier heritage, and, during the winter months, the Snowking Winter Festival held inside an actual ice palace! Travel minutes from downtown and you're in the heart of the wild, where outdoor adventures and the mesmerizing aurora borealis await.

Where Adventures Meet!

The Northwest Territories is a land of extremes: towering snow-capped mountains, lakes big as many seas, and a landscape that is endless and unspoiled. From your base at our hotel you can take part in many adventures, including canoeing, aurora borealis sightings, dogsledding, wildlife viewing, and much more. The Explorer Hotel in Yellowknife is truly where adventure meets!
