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 and currently the only visitor information centre in the city.
Location: Lower Level – 4807 – 52 Street, Yellowknife, NT (map)
Winter Hours of Operation: Monday-Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Summer Hours of Operation: Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday 10 a.m. 5 p.m.
At this location, you can speak directly with a City of Yellowknife tourism councilor, find brochures for local tour operators and collect your very own City of Yellowknife Pin.
Northwest Territories Tourism
Northwest Territories Tourism uses the brand name Spectacular NWT and is the Destination Marketing Organization for all of the Northwest Territories. On their website, spectacularnwt.com, you can find local information on Yellowknife operators and request a Northwest Territories Explorer Guide.
Yellowknife Online, ykonline.ca, is a free online website aimed at providing practical and relevant information for visitors and residents. The website is full of content on things to do, places to see and how to access information. If you don’t see the information you are looking for you can contact us and we’d be happy to help.
The City of Yellowknife also produces an annual Visitors Guide. The guide provides additional information on local tour operators and businesses.
