My wife and I are planning a trip to Yellowknife, possibly 3rd or 4th week of January. Living in Southern California most of our lives isn't helping when it comes to preparing for a trip to Yellowknife!
Couple nights ago, I randomly was looking at the temperature for Yellowknife, and I'm pretty sure I read some like "-20 F"....-20 F... that was about 80 degrees lower than what I'm used to here!
This made us start to think about what kind of clothing we should bring. We would be taking a tour for the Northern Lights, and it seems they have a winter clothing rental, which we would definitely look into renting... but what else should we prepare for?
It seems the rule of thumb is to wear clothing in layers, and so far, I've gathered a list to look into: Polar Fleece jacket, Fur Mittens, and Neck Gaiters.
I'm still pretty clueless regarding socks and foot wear, as well as any other outer jackets and pants. (Are Jeans okay as a second layer?)
I'm hoping to not freeze to death as i climb out of the air plane... Thanks in advanced!
