About Yellowknife and Places to Visit
Mercury Jets provides private jet charter flights to and from Yellowknife.
On the north shore of Great Slave Lake lies Yellowknife, an important administrative center and capital of the Northwest Territories. It was founded in the mid-20th century after discovering gold deposits in the area and was named after an Indian tribe that once lived in the area and was able to make objects out of copper. Today, Yellowknife is the educational and commercial center of the region and the most populated town in the province. It is freezing in the winter, but many travelers wish to see the polar lights and go dogsledding, making Yellowknife a popular vacation spot in any season of the year.
Yellowknife is rich in various natural attractions, with many waterfalls, rivers, lakes, and national parks in the vicinity. One of these, the Buck River, can amaze not only a reservoir with many different species of fish but also a nature reserve on the coast. There are thousands of migratory birds for fishers catching sturgeon, and trout remains rich to this day. In Nahanni National Park is Virginia Falls at an elevation of five hundred meters. It is pretty massive, with a rock in the center, named after the famous screenwriter and director, Bill Mason. Often compared to Niagara Falls, Virginia Falls has therapeutic thermal springs and observation decks around it.
The public Yellowknife Airport (YZF, CYZF) is excellent for private charters to and from Yellowknife. It is conveniently located 10 minutes from downtown Yellowknife and receives over half a million passengers a year.
