Not only did this company pick us up (group of adults from Australia) from the airport but they escorted all our group on a city tour. We were picked up from our hotel and taken to see the Northern Lights on two of our nights in Whitehorse. At the site for viewing the lights there was plenty of room, photographic... More

The staff are very friendly, helpful and on time. We especially enjoyed the wild life preserve and the hot springs, as well as the dog sledding with Sky High. It was very exciting viewing the northern lights, the staff were also helpful at pointing out the constellations as well as helping with settings on our cameras to get the best... More

We had a great time at all. The dog sled company was extremely well ran and we had the best day. The northern light viewing set up... More

We had 4 nights with Northern Tales and have nothing but praise for this trip. We were picked up from the airport and given a very comprehensive briefing of our stay. The first and fourth nights were in a very comfortable hotel in the town of Whitehorse and the other 2 nights were at the Borealis Lodge. The night trips... More

Very well organised tour, pick ups and itinerary are clearly communicated and the packaged hotel is in a convenient location in the town centre. The guides were all very nice and professional, and everyone seemed genuinely enthusiastic about the Whitehorse area, the wilderness and aurora, which is quite infectious. The night excursion to view the aurora was a fantastic experience... More

Spend 2 nights of viewing. There was no Aurora to be seen night 1 but it was still fun, spending time around the outdoor fire and alternating with time in the cosy cabins, drinking good coffee and hot chocolate. Second night was similar but at 2.20 am, shortly before we were due to drive back to the hotel a very... More

I had 4 days with Northern Tales, the guides are lovely, knowledgeable and very helpful! They picked me up from the airport and dropped me off the hotel, helped organise my tours, and of course the aurora viewing. Their setup is excellent and I would definetly recommend these guys to everyone!

This was amazing, and the fact that Mother Nature performed was even more brilliant. The guides, were so helpful, friendly, and accommodating. The person that owns the land has set up a great camp site, with warm cabins, and built tripods for use for cameras, and there is great snacks and drinks to keep you going. The tour guides took...
