Aurora Viewing Tours

Northern Tales Travel Services Inc.

Experience the crisp night air, the squeak of your footsteps on the hard packed snow, and the magical northern lights.

Overview

To the north an eerie, sulphurous-green sheen begins to ripple into the night sky. It arcs into an ebb and flow, slowly growing, then suddenly bursts across the full expanse of the night sky waving and dancing as if it were happy. It’s the spectacular and mystical northern lights and viewings such as the one above are common in the Yukon.

Northern lights viewing activities take place outside the city. A heated, cozy cabin or wall tent is available for your comfort. Hot drinks and snacks are provided.

INTRIGUED BY AURORA BOREALIS AND WILDERNESS

Alex K.

Professional guides with multi-lingual ability to help us to understand the awesome aurora borealis and the wilderness in the Yukon. Cozy cottages kept us warm and humorous guides kept us motivated while waiting for the Aurora.

OFF THE BUCKET LIST

This trip was on our bucket list and this tour did not disappoint. They arranged our flights, hotel, day tours and night viewing. Everything was perfect, except for cloudy nights for aurora viewing. That’s nature and you can’t blame the tour company. We were warm and cozy in one of the two cabins. The coffee will really keep you up all night! I was amazed how many languages the guides were fluent in and how knowledgeable they were about cameras. The day trip to the nature preserve and hot springs was worth doing. We split our trip between Whitehorse and the boreale ranch with two night viewings. Personally the pick up at 10.30 and return of 3 am was a killer. I like the ranch better because I can go back to the room or hang in the spa. Highly recommend this company. Really great staff!

Jessica and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our guides were amazing on both occasions. Francois, Jonathan, Kristin and Kat were very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Everything ran right on schedule. All references for places to eat, drink and explore were right on the mark. Loved our first Yukon experience and will definitely be back!
