…and LOOK UP!
Enjoy the spectacular Aurora shows at your convenience, just outside the door of your room~!
This is a one-of-a kind experience: two private floating homes at anchor in gorgeous Yellowknife Bay, 200 meters from shore, with perfect views of the Yellowknife floating home community and of the Northern Lights! Our ECO, off-grid floating homes are premium-built residences with all the amenities, frozen-in during winter and floating in the summer!
How you get to our floating homes~!
DURING OPEN WATER SEASON: A taxi will drop you off at Government Dock from the airport. Your initial pick up is with our power boat. Once we bring you on aboard, your transportation to and from our floating homes is a canoe that we provide. You must have moderate paddling skills to be able to canoe 400 meters to get to the canoe launch. In poor weather conditions, we can ferry you over with our power boat.
ON THE ICE: Drive right up and park beside our frozen-in floating homes on well over a meter of ice! Taxis will come to our door during the winter months for pick up and drop off on our clearly marked ice road from the boat launch.
Get a feel of the place~!
