The Aurora Borealis is one of the most beautiful natural phenomena one can experience.
The Aurora Borealis is one of the most beautiful natural phenomena one can experience and chances are excellent that you will see it if you come for a visit to the Yukon in the winter. If you are only in town for a short time, take advantage of our beautiful Northern Lights centre, only 20 minutes out of town. Located in open fields with no artificial lights around – they provide perfect viewing conditions! We offer tours every evening and while it is cold and crisp outside, our authentic yurt will keep you warm and cozy.
We pick you up at your hotel or B&B in Whitehorse and bring you to the viewing centre. Pick up time is between 9-9:30pm. While at the site, we will serve hot drinks, a light snack and share some of the folklore surrounding the Aurora with you. By 2:00 am, you will be back at your hotel still captured by the beauty of the Aurora Borealis.
