A guided hike with Strong Interpretations

Posted on April 11th, 2011 in North,Northwest Territories,YouTube by alex and luke

We love getting outdoors and taking in the natural wonders that exist wherever we travel. We can never get over how magnificent this continent is, and how different it is from region to region. The area surrounding Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories is extra special. It is subarctic (almost desert-like in fact) and even though many trees are over 100 years old, they never grow very large. Between the wood buffalo, the ptarmigans (think round fluffy snowball shaped birds), and the snowshoe hare, the fauna is wildly different than what we find at home around Toronto.

Knowing very little about the Yellowknife climate and geography, we enlisted the help of Rosanna Strong from Strong Interpretations to take us out on a guided hike to Cameron Falls (just outside of the city). We learned so much from Rosanna, who also took us on a traditional snowshoe hike around Pontoon Lake! What a spectacular day in the woods – check out some of what we got up to on the trails!

To meet up with Rosanna and book a day out with Strong Interpretations on your trip to Yellowknife, go to the Northern Frontier Visitors Centre Website (click here!)
