Yellowknife Hiking Buddy

Yellowknife is located right in the middle of the Boreal Forest on the Canadian Shield. This makes it a fantastic place to go hiking. But as a visitor, knowing where these trails are or how to get to the trailhead might not be possible.

Yellowknife Online has created the Yellowknife Hiking Buddy, where we will head out with you to hike some of Yellowknife’s lesser accessible hiking trails so you can see the pure beauty of our natural surroundings.We’ll pick you up where you desire, drive out to the trailhead, hike through the boreal forest, summer or winter, and then return you right back to your desired location.

This is not a traditional tour. This is an opportunity to hike some of Yellowknife’s hiking trails when you might not know where they are or have a way of getting to them. You will also get to hike with a local who knows the trails and is familiar with the area.
