Inside: Cambridge Bay Airport
Cambridge Bay Airport is tiny and you shouldn't expect the amenities that are standard at large or even mid-sized airports here. Getting to the airport is easy as it is just a 5-minute drive from Cambridge Bay itself. There is only one terminal building with just two check-in counters, one for Canadian North and one for First Air, so don't worry about getting lost. You will have to wait for your flight in the waiting area and then walk across the tarmac to your plane once you are called. While there aren't many amenities at this airport, staff are extremely friendly and there is a stuffed musk ox at the baggage carousel which is quite an interesting sight.
Landing in Yellowknife Airport
Yellowknife Airport isn't huge either, but it does have a good choice of amenities on offer. To get into Yellowknife itself you can rent a car from one of the three rental agencies that are located in the terminal itself. There are also hotel shuttles that offer service to the Capital Suites, Explorer Hotel, and Yellowknife Inn. Two taxi companies offer services to and from the airport and there is a gift shop and a Quiznos at the airport.

If that's the case, you can find a hotel that offers a great room and all the amenities you need using Skyscanner. If you are connecting onwards to Southern Canada, you have plenty of options.
