Enjoy a break from driving. Stop and rest on the picturesque shores of Great Slave Lake to take photos or simply to relax with a picnic. Be sure to look around you – the scenery abruptly changes here from rolling, well treed Mackenzie lowlands to the granite of the Canadian shield. This is a prime waterfowl nesting area.
Continue up Highway 3 to Yellowknife for shopping, restaurants, several hotels and all modern amenities.
