The Dettah ice road is located in the North Slave Region of the Northwest Territories, Canada. This ice road, with a length of 6.5 km (4.0 mi), connects Yellowknife and the small community of Dettah in the winter.
Located just outside the capital of Yellowknife, it's a 27 km drive by all-weather track in summer (via the Ingraham Trail), and in winter, Dettah can be reached by this ice road across Yellowknife Bay. It’s open to vehicles weighing a maximum of 40,000kgs and may have rough sections. Please drive with caution and obey all posted signage.
