I visited YellowKnife in mid April 2013 with a friend, and stayed 4D3N at Trout Rock Lodge (aka Enodah). Met & got to know the lodge owner Ragnar, ChefRon, and Angela/CK/Verda from the local support YellowKnife Tours and had a ball of time there. A big pleasant surprise.
With the bluest skies, white clouds, pristine snow & surrounding, pacto toilet, solar panels, water conservation, clean & pollution-free everything, this place depicts green & renewable environment, it will bring a big smile to all. For a city folk like moi, this was a fun & adventure packed trip, with activities involving Hagglunds (amphibious vehicle), snow mobile, snow shoeing, dog sled, ice fishing & all, quite like a 007 arctic session. We handfed Billy the wild bird, heard tales of Shabu-Shabu the fox and the lone wolf ……. wilderness at the closest. ChefRon whipped wholesome home-cooked meals for us, and had pike sashimi after a hard day work at fishing …… all in the name of food glorious food & enjoyed every mealtime & company together !!! The sunset, twilight, stars-lit nights and aurora here are breathtaking and spectacular … a wonder in almost everything we see.
This is such a wonderful small town with a big heart. Hope to be back in another season to bask in this blessed nature offering. Enodah & Yellowknife Tours warmth & hospitality …. touched all over. Came as a visitor, left as a friend wanting to be back again. :)
