  Canadian Fly in Fishing Trip for Northern Pike, Lake Trout and Arctic Grayling in the Northwest Territories of Canada. 

How will I get to Yellowknife? 

To guarantee easy, direct flights, it’s best to fly into Edmonton, or Calgary, Alberta,  where you will board a local carrier for the short flight to Yellowknife 

Canadian North,   First Air,   West Jet,   Air Canada have daily flights from Edmonton to Yellowknife.  It is about a one and one half hour flight.  You will find the local carriers very polite and friendly.  West Jet and Air Canada are international, but also fly to Yellowknife on a daily bases so make sure to check their sites for special deals and pricing. 

Our usual float charter is booked for early 9 AM departure from the float base in Yellowknife on your starting date so a stay over in Yellowknife will be required on your way to the lodge. This will also allow you to leave home later on your way to Yellowknife and to get the best rates for that day. 

Going home you will be back in Yellowknife by 11:00 AM on your day of departure form the lodge, so you should make it home same day to most Canada/Us destinations, transferring in Edmonton or Calgary.

Since we restrict ourselves to a number that allows us work closely with you,  we will be please to help you with booking suggestions.

Where to stay in Yellowknife?

We recommend the Days inn & Suites,    Yellowknife Inn or    Explorer Hotel   for your travels.  Hearne Lake Lodge guests are given special rates at the Chateau Nova.  Mention you are coming to  Hearne Lake Lodge.  Up to you but I personally stay at the Chateau Nova when in Yellowknife. 

We use Air Tindi, Summit Air and Open Water Charters for float plane travel, utilizing a Twin Otter, Cessna Caravan or Cessna 185, depending on the number of guests traveling to and from the lodge that day.   We also use Great Slave Helicopters and Summit Helicopters for off season transportation.  We believe the float plane ride is part of a true Northern experience, Attention to customer service is second to none with these companies.
