Did you know Yellowknife has Canada’s sunniest summers? Here in the semi-desert of the Subarctic, cloudy days are rare. What’s more, our round-the-clock sun can be downright scorching – which makes August the perfect month to hit the water. Head down to Great Slave Lake and you’ll see scores of boats, from sailing sloops to cabin cruisers to paddleboards. You can rent just about anything – kayaks, fishing boats, houseboats, whatever suits your fancy. Experience our Northern waters: You’ll have a splash.
