Exploring Yellowknife Visiting Yellowknife

Yellowknife Visitor Centre and Information

In the past year, the Yellowknife visitor information services have changed. The Northern Frontier Visitors Association has dissolved and no longer operates the Northern Frontier Visitor Centre. The City of Yellowknife has since opened a temporary Visitor Centre inside City Hall. To help you find the information you are looking for we have pulled together some of the resources that provide visitor information.

City of Yellowknife Visitor Information Centre

This is the City of Yellowknife operated Visitor Information Centre which recently re-opened in the Centre Square Mall in downtown Yellowknife.

Location: Centre Square Mall, 5014 – 49th Street
Hours of Operation: Monday-Sunday 10:00 am – 6:00 pm

At this location, you can speak directly with a City of Yellowknife tourism councillor, find brochures for local tour operators and collect your very own City of Yellowknife Pin.
