Overview


Once in a Lifetime Experience in the Northern Hemisphere with Adventure & Activities. Come to Yukon and experience the Northern lights, one of the great natural wonders of the world. In Yukon, the northern lights can appear as soon as dark night skies begin to return. That means you'll often see dancing, shimmering lights before the first snowfall.

Itinerary


Upon arrival at the airport you will be greeted by a local representative who will welcome you to the Yukon and transfer you to your hotel. Once you have checked in you will receive an orientation meeting describing what to expect during your stay. The rest of the day is yours until your first evening viewing of the Aurora Borealis. The Aurora Borealis, commonly known as the Northern Lights, is a spectacle of magnetic and electrical charges in the air, colouring the sky a multitude of majestic hues. Tonight is your first chance to view this spectacular show. Departing the hotel at 22:00 in groups, you will be taken to a prime viewing area and treated to snacks and hot drinks during your viewing. Contemplate the sublime beauty of this fascinating array of blues, reds, greens and violets in this idyllic setting as you relax in a cozy heated cabin or walled tent. Return to the hotel at approximately 02:30. You will have another opportunity for viewing tomorrow evening. Overnight in Whitehorse. Please note, passengers arriving later than 20:30 should take the complimentary airport shuttle bus to the hotel. They will also miss the first night of Aurora Viewing. Overnight in Whitehorse.
