Yellowknife, 5 minutes from anywhere [VIDEO]

The City of Yellowknife and the boys at Artless Collective have just released their latest Yellowknife video. This one, titled “5 Minutes From Home”, showcases a Yellowknife summer. Cameras followed around many locals, through hiking trails, festivals and on the water.

What I think many of us residents will relate with is the “5 minutes from home” slogan. It is a saying that can be used in many different way. I remember when I was little my dad talking about his commute to work in Yellowknife, only being 5 minutes, compared to the 60 minutes it use to take him in Ontario. Or it could be used in the sense of getting out of Yellowknife for some R&R. We are only 5 minutes from the great outdoors.

In true fashion this video also features the music of the local band, Erebus and Terror.
