Also known as the Diamond Capital (just a mere 300 km away from Canadian Arctic diamonds, hence the name), Yellowknife is an exquisite place to honeymoon and I’ll tell you why: it’s every adventurer’s playground. Filled with so much to see and do, Yellowknife holds a distinct charm that no other place in Canada does. Fishing, boating (Great Slave Lake is the place to check out), hiking (you must head to Pilot’s monument on ‘the rock’ for a breathtaking view of the city), or merely taking in one of the natural wonders of this gorgeous locale, you’ll find that there’s always something to do. As much as many of the daytime activities appeal though, the magic happens at night when the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) appear–a natural light show display that literally fills up the sky with unbelievable colours–truly a romantic setting!
WHERE TO STAY: Located in the heart of downtown and with 129 suites, The Yellownknife Inn is one of the best places to stay in the city. Each room comes complete with modern and sleek furnishings, so after a day of exciting adventure expect to be pampered in a comfortable yet chic room. Bonus: there are two in-house restos available at your disposal–Mackenzie Lounge and L’atitudes Restaurant–so you and your mister don’t have to venture far to enjoy a delicious meal!
