Yellowknife Snowshoeing Tour

Highlights

  • Start the day with 10am pickup at your hotel in Yellowknife (selected hotels only, exact pickup locations confirmed upon booking), then travel to the Frame Lake Trail trailhead, where you’ll get suited with a pair of Bigfoot snowshoes and walking poles. Follow your guide through the snow, enjoying views of the frozen lake, which is fringed by dense stands of evergreen trees. Spot the tiny islands that dot the lake, and see where Yellowknife neighborhoods give way to taiga just beyond the edge of the city. Your guide will share stories about Frame Lake and Yellowknife, from the area’s indigenous roots to daily life in the modern city. At the end of the walk, warm up with a hot drink and a snack, then make the return trip to your Yellowknife hotel, where this tour concludes. Note: Depending on snow and weather conditions, the guide may choose a different snowshoe trail in the area.
