Aurora Capital of North America

Every year scores of tourists take a trip to Yellowknife for a chance to observe the Northern Lights over a remote yet scenic landscape deep in Canada's Norwest Territories. Founded as a gold-mining settlement, Yellowknife is now a modern city with cultural centers and museums, as well as a slew of atmospheric cafes and restaurants with some of the finest views in all of North America. For most visitors, a holiday in Yellowknife provides an opportunity to discover a network of hiking and walking trails, leading past picturesque lakes and rivers. Summer months let you fish, camp, cycle, and bird-watch, while the winter remains the domain of sports like hockey, skating, skiing, and curling. Yellowknife is in Northwest Territories.
