The results are in! Next to Aurora tours, Yellowknifers believe the outdoors, lakes, wildlife and fishing are the biggest local tourist attractions.

Sunday, May 14 2017

During the two day show May 13 and 14 at the Multiplex, 111 Yellowknifers were surveyed about the importance of Yellowknife tourism over the next 5 to 10 years. They were asked if they would support a visitor Accommodation Levy to fund marketing of Yellowknife as a year-round tourism destination.

Our community members were clear that they see mostly summertime outdoor adventures on land and water as the #1 draw next to fall and winter Aurora viewing. Camping, arts and culture, traditional indigenous activities and local and mining history including Old Town were second. Winter tourism and dog sledding were also top contenders.
