DHC-2 Skiplane - Yellowknife Area Flightseeing

From CAD $500.00
  • Duration: 45 Minutes (approx.)
  • Location: Yellowknife, NT
  • Product code: SKI001

Winter looks like it has arrived and is here to stay in Yellowknife.  We are busy moving the planes from floats to skis right now and waiting for the ice levels to build on Back Bay.

If you are looking for a unique experience over the Christmas holiday treat yourself  to a skiplane experience

on board one of our iconic de Havilland Canada DHC-2 Beaver aircraft.  Not only will you experience a flight from
the ice but you will also get a raven's eye view of the Yellowknife area and
get to see the various tracks, trails and ice roads used for recreation.

Our Beaver aircraft feature comfortable interiors, enlarged windows for easy
viewing and aviation headsets for all guests to provide easy communication
between guests and the pilot.


We will depart from
the ice on Yellowknife's Back Bay and follow the network of lakes north of the
Ingraham Trail that connect the Cameron River with the Yellowknife River. 
Fly over the Cameron Falls located in Hidden Lake Territorial Park then track
across country towards the Community of Dettah on the Eastern shore of
Yellowknife Bay before returning to Yellowknife via the former Con Mine site. 

While over Yellowknife you will be given the opportunity to receive a unique
view of the city's various neighbourhoods and parts including the downtown,
Frame Lake, Old Town, House Boat Bay, and Back Bay.
