Virginia Falls
Yellowknife and surrounding

Canada is rich in waterfalls. There you can not only visit one waterfall but make a whole trip to these natural attractions. And then choose your favorite waterfall.

Virginia Falls is a waterfall that is almost twice the height of Niagara Falls. Its height is 96 meters. To see the waterfall you will need to come to the city of Yellowknife and climb to a height of 500 meters.

Virginia consists of a single, but fairly wide cascade. Its length is almost 260 meters. So it looks very impressive! Short descents and powerful rapids also give this natural attraction a flavor.

There is a high rock almost in the center of the Virginia Falls. It is called Mason's Rock. It was named after the famous Canadian screenwriter and director Bill Mason.

Virginia Falls is one of the most spectacular sights in Yellowknife. The falling water is so loud. You can't even hear the speech because of this noise. Spray from the water rises into the sky in small drops, creating a haze. It refracts sunlight and creates an incredibly beautiful game of shades and a bright rainbow.

Safe viewing platforms are arranged around the waterfall for the convenience of tourists. There are also therapeutic thermal springs for those who care about their health. And all this is surrounded by majestic coniferous trees that fill the air with the fresh aroma of firs and pines.

Unfortunately, Virginia Falls is not very popular among tourists due to its remoteness (almost 500 kilometers from the city of Yellowknife). But this is also the advantage of the waterfall compared to Niagara Falls. Virginia Falls offer to enjoy the beauty without the crowd of guests and queues to the observation decks.

It seems that 500 km is a long distance. In fact, you can easily get to the waterfall by car, as there are convenient roads. You can also get there by plane or even by boat.
