Witness the unbelievable colors of the Aurora Borealis on a tour that takes you deep into the Northwest Territories. Guides ensure you get the best possible views by visiting a number of isolated locations far from the lights of the city. Warm up under the starry sky with hot beverages, and return to Yellowknife with Northern Lights photos that will last a lifetime. Hotel pickup makes for a seamless experience.
What to Expect
Your evening starts with a pickup from your centrally located Yellowknife accommodation between 8:30pm and 10:30pm (departure time varies seasonally). Begin the trek out of the city in the comfort of a mini-coach equipped with free Wi-Fi.
Once in the backcountry, guides begin hunting for the best views of the Northern Lights. At each location, you’ll have access to washrooms, the warmth of your transportation vehicle, and, at certain stops, heated tents and teepees.
Between photo opportunities of the dancing lights, enjoy hot beverages and snacks with your group, and listen as your guides explain how and why the Northern Lights exist in this region of Canada.
After a night of sky-gazing, relax in the comfort of the coach on the return trip. Your adventure ends back at your doorstep in Yellowknife.
