Awarded as a Canadian Signature Experience, you will be sure to have a once-in-a-lifetime travel experience with this tour.

You will be presented an information meeting and registration for optional tours at the hotel. At 10pm, depart for Aurora viewing in a cozy, heated cabin or wall tent with hot drinks & snacks. Return to hotel around 3am.


After a night of Aurora Viewing, take the morning after to sleep in for some extra rest. Partake in a city tour with Main Street, Train Depot of the White Pass and Yukon Route, Visitor Reception Center, Log Skyscraper, Log Church, Sternwheeler SS Klondike, Fish ladder, Schwatka Lake and some residential areas. In the afternoon, you can register for optional tours if you wish. At 10pm again, depart for Aurora viewing. Again, in a warm-up cabin hot drinks and snacks are provided. You may sit around a roaring fire and share stories. Return to hotel around 3am for rest.


Take the morning and afternoon at leisure, either resting from a night of Aurora Viewing or registering for afternoon optional tour.

Return to hotel around 3am after seeing a wonderful array of dancing lights in the night sky.


Today, transfer to the airport and fly back to Vancouver. Then, begin your trip back to home, sweet, home.


Where can we eat in Whitehorse/how are meals arranged?

There are many options to go out and eat in Whitehorse. The city offers a great variety of restaurants from fast food to high end establishments. Our guide will be happy to recommend places to eat, depending on your wishes. Meals are not usually arranged on a regular schedule (i.e., breakfast, lunch, and dinner, 3 meals a day), because of the special schedule of Aurora Viewing. We recommend having brunch, dinner, then snacks during the viewing.

What kind of optional tours can we participate in?

Your tour guide will go through this with you if you have not booked optional tours in advance. There are a variety of optional tours, such as Dog Sledding, Ice Fishing and Snowshoeing, visiting the Yukon Wildlife Preserve & Takhini Hot Springs, and more!

What is the best month and time of day for Aurora Borealis Viewing?

In northern regions like the Yukon, the best time to view the aurora is from late August to mid-April because the night skies are not dark enough during the summer. Under average conditions, observations around midnight are most likely to yield results.

Do we need the Winter Clothing Package?

Depending on the time of year you are visiting the Yukon, the temperatures can be as cold as -40 degrees Celsius. In order to be safe and enjoy possible outdoor activities as well as looking at Aurora displays, we strongly recommend the rental of the winter clothing package, unless you have good winter sport clothing at home that you are comfortable in. We can arrange clothing rental for the entire duration of your viewing package.
