TRIP DESCRIPTION

To the north an eerie, sulphurous sheen begins to ripple into the night sky. It arcs itself into an ebb and flow, slowly growing, then suddenly bursts across the full expanse of the night sky waving and dancing as if it were happy. It’s the spectacular and mystical Northern Lights and viewings such as the one above are common in the Yukon.

Northern Lights viewing activities take place outside the city. A heated, cozy cabin or wall tent is available for your comfort. Hot drinks and snacks are provided.

Itinerary | 1 NIGHT

1 Night Aurora Viewing

We will pick you up at your hotel at 10 pm. We’ll then drive for about 25 minutes to the heated viewing facility out of town to avoid the disturbing lights of the city (light pollution). At the viewing site we offer hot drinks and snacks. There will be a campfire outside as well for you to sit around, roast marsh mallows and enjoy the quiet and clear winter night and of course the breathtaking Aurora Borealis displays. At around 2:30 am we will return you to your hotel.
