"Driving to Yellowknife" Canada Transportation Tip by ktduncan

Canada Transportation: 109 reviews and 92 photos

We tried to drive to Yellowknife but when we arrived in Hay River we discovered that there wasn't enough ice on the Great Slave Lake for the ice bridge to be open, but there was too much for the ferry to be in operation. This was in early June and everyone wanting to drive to Yellowknife had to wait in Hay River for days. The campground and hotels were overflowing.
