Tour Days: You will be in Yellowknife on days 1, 2, and 9 of the Bucketlist Tour.

Upon arrival in Yellowknife, you will take the hotel shuttle to the Yellowknife Inn, where your guide will greet you. You will check in and have the rest of the day to explore on your own. We will all meet in the lobby at a time to be determined and go for dinner in the private dining room of the Explorer Hotel. The meal will consist of a pre planned selection of northern fare. We will introduce ourselves, get oriented, and begin our journey.

Breakfast is on your own. Have breakfast and check out before 8:30 am.
8:30am: Meet in the hotel lobby, check out, luggage on the bus for a full day city tour.

Today we will discover Yellowknife with an experienced guide. We will spend the day exploring. We will visit Old Town and learn about Yellowknife’s beginnings. On Latham Island we will see houseboats and galleries, and then head down town. We will visit the Legislative Assembly, the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre (opened by Prince Charles). Lunch is included in our day tour.

We will end our city tour at Buffalo Airways where we will take a tour of the hangar and then board an historic DC-3 airplane for our short flight to Hay River with a pilot from the famous television series Ice Pilots NWT. There is a great chance Buffalo Joe could be our pilot! (No guarantees).
