Yukon: Aurora Borealis Evening Viewing Tour

1. Yukon: Aurora Borealis Evening Viewing Tour

Be collected from the Whitehorse hotel and board a comfortable warm minibus to begin your scenic trek out of the city. Your guide will drive you directly to a custom-built viewing location, which is equipped with restrooms. On arrival, immerse yourself in the quiet natural landscape and gaze at the unbelievable colors of the aurora borealis. This is one of the most sought-after Northern experiences, a Yukon winter vacation is only complete by viewing the aurora borealis cascading across the night sky. A chemical light reaction caused when solar energy interacts with the Earth’s atmosphere, producing dramatic dancing waves of green light from one horizon to another. The Northern Lights have captivated viewers since the beginning of time, as evidenced by the many Yukon First Nation legends they have inspired.  As you listen to your guide explain how and why the northern lights are formed in this area of the Yukon, warm up with hot drinks and refuel with complimentary snacks. Rest assured that your guide is there for technical photography assistance as you snap photographs over the course of the evening. Relax or doze off on the ride back to Whitehorse, where the tour ends at the doorstep of your accommodation.

What people are saying about Yukon

Great tour! You could stay in a warm cabin/hut if you would like until the Northern Lights came out and the tour guides told you to come out to see them. The coloured lights can be difficult to see with the naked eye, so it was really helpful to have their expertise and photography skills. They took photos with their DSLR cameras which you could purchase later. They were also kind enough to drop me off at my hotel which I wasn't expecting. I would do this tour again. 10/10!

everything was perfect ... except that the price of 20 euros / photos! is outright abuse, suddenly, no memory of this exceptional output

Couldn't see the Northernlight, But the guides were nice and I met a number of new people.

Excellent Guide Gustavo Rebolledo is an example of service and attitude!
