Visitor Information Centre

Welcome to Hay River!

One of the first stops you should make when you arrive in our beautiful Town is our Visitor Information Centre. Here you will find knowledgeable staff eager to help you. They will have local knowledge about our Town and surrounding region as well as current information on what is happening in the ‘Hub of the North’.

If you are travelling by camper make this your first and last stop in our area to top up your water tank and drain your septic tank.  Inside the friendly staff will offer you a cup of coffee, tea or water. If need be you can also use the washroom facilities. Don’t forget to browse through our artisan shop, which features art made by local artists. There is free WiFi if you need to look up information or send a message to those back home.
