Watch the skies light up in Canada’s majestic north

Canada’s Yukon holds more magic than people realize, especially during the winter. Outside of Whitehorse are prime locations to view the northern lights, and this tour leads you right to them. You’ll embark on nightly excursions to huddle around a bonfire and find the darkest spots to gaze at the magical light show. During the day, you can customize as you please with guided snowshoeing tours, sightseeing, or exploring the nearby frozen lakes. This tour included a guided tour through the Yukon Wildlife Reserve, giving you plenty of time to appreciate the remote, unspoiled nature and all its inhabitants.

The Yukon Ultimate Northern Lights Tour is set as a 3-day adventure, but you can add extra days up to five. Seeing Northern Lights isn’t guaranteed, but at this time of the year each additional day increases your chance.

You may want to extend just to stay in the hotel for extra time! You’ll be well taken care of and super comfortable in a luxury downtown hotel—and a major bonus, it has a rooftop hot tub! If you’ve dreamt of seeing the aurora borealis, this tour is your ticket to checking it off your list!
