Why Take a Northern Lights Tour?

Unless you’ve taken a Yukon Tour in the past, it’s hard to imagine how quiet, tranquil and truly amazing the Yukon can be. Seeing the Northern lights is only a small part of the rare beauty that’s waiting for you on this incredible Aurora Borealis Tour.  

For example, imagine taking a deep breath and filling your lungs with pure, clean, crisp Yukon air … hearing the squeak of your footsteps on the hard packed snow ..  and watching in jaw-dropping amazement as the bright green hues of the Northern Lights dance in front of your very eyes. That’s only the beginning of what you’ll see and feel when you say YES to our Aurora Borealis Tour  ( Northern Lights Tour ).

Spending a night (or few) in the Yukon is an adventure in itself. You can customize our Yukon Tours by choosing between a warm and cozy cabin, or sleeping almost under the stars in one of our heated wall tents. Each accomodation offers a unique experience that’s hard to describe in words, but rest assured, being cold is not an option. Wood fired barrel stoves, hot drinks and snacks are provided with all Yukon tours.

Add a Winter Adventure Package to Your Aurora Borealis Tour

To make your Yukon experience truly spectacular, consider adding a Winter Adventure Activity Package to your Aurora Borealis Tour ( Northern Lights Tour ).

We offer several half day and full day packages that will make your Northern vacation even better than you can imagine.
