Paddling Yellowknife Lakes
The lakes are open during those perfect summer months of June through September, right when you need to cool down. Yellowknife offers a lot of different water activities, so let’s discuss them now.
Canoeing & Kayaking
Not everyone is an experienced at canoeing on the open water, however, the camps offer a lot of packages to help you have a great and safe day. There are long weekend trips for the experienced water enthusiasts, very scenic routes, and gorgeous waterfalls to take your breath away. Canoeing or Kayaking is a great way to get out in the environment, cool down, and bond with a couple of friends.
While paddling the Yellowknife Lakes is one of the biggest activities during the summer, you could always take a chance at your luck with fishing, let the wind breeze through your hair with some classic windsurfing, or rent a boat or cruise.
