The Great Slave Gateway

Get a feel for the frontier on the shores of an epic lake

Great Slave Lake is the second largest lake within Canada. Sandy beaches stretch for miles on the south shore, and the small town of Hay River is a great place to refuel and grab a bite to eat before embarking on adventures into this frontier.

Great Slave Lake is also the deepest body of water in Canada at 2,014 feet. Travelers willing to make the trip are rewarded with some of the best fishing in the world.

Follow the coast of this amazing body of water for some great discoveries. Learn where gold was mined, and follow the MacKenzie Highway around the lake to reach Yellowknife, the capital of the Northwest Territory and a remarkable city in its own right.
