Best time to visit Aug - Apr

“Into the bowl of the midnight sky / Violet, amber and rose…” Famed gold rush poet, Robert Service, was inspired by the North and enthralled by the northern lights.

Those same mesmerizing skies arrive each fall as darkness returns to Yukon nights. You might first see a hint of neon colour, then a jagged burst of green, and soon you're transfixed by shimmering aurora borealis. Dependent on auroral activity and clear skies, every appearance of the northern lights is special and unique.

Experience the exceptional beauty and wonder of the northern lights for yourself.
