A Jewel in the Forest

Skywatch sits at the edge of Yellowknife’s wilderness. Just a short 25 minute drive outside of the City, arriving at our boutique lodge feels like you have left civilization behind – except you have just arrived at one of the most civilized sanctuaries in northern Canada.

Skywatch features a light-filled main lodge and a spa that glows like a jewel in the forest.

This is your luxury base camp for adventure by day and pampering by night.

  • Main Lodge – Locally-inspired architecture and art-filled interiors bring the outside in while enveloping you in deep comfort.
  • Dining Room & Bar – Fireside drinks and dining overlooking the boreal forest.
  • Private Dining Room – For special occasions, meetings and hosted dinners by local luminaries.
  • Library Lounge – Quiet corners and window seats by the fire overlooking a small lake. Telescopes for night sky viewing. Oh, and did we mention that you can help yourself to all-day snacks, espresso, tea, wine, beer and spirits?
  • Media Room – For movies, sporting events, karaoke and special presentations.
  • Skywatch Deck – Recline in the sun or under glorious rooftop views of the aurora directly overhead.
  • Retail Gallery – Curated collections of local arts, crafts, jewelry, books, music, clothing and other gifts.
  • Tea House & Fire Circle – Warm up during cold winter nights of aurora viewing on the hill and take refuge with a steaming cup of hot chocolate or local tea.
