Northern Lights Of Yukon

Whitehorse and the stunning surrounding wilderness are only a two and a half hour flight from Vancouver but offer one of the best vantage points to witness the aurora borealis light up the night sky. In addition, if you visit in late summer or autumn you’ll be treated to Yukon’s phenomenal fall colours. Or, perhaps go in winter when the fairy-tale snowy scenes add an extra sprinkling of magic to your trip.

Itinerary:

Day 1 Whitehorse        
Arrive into Whitehorse, Yukon’s compact capital and transfer to your downtown hotel. Meet with a Yukon representative for a short briefing of what the next few days has in store. The rest of the day is free to explore this quirky town before departing at 10pm for your first Northern Lights viewing just a short drive from the city. Watch the spectacle from the base of a warm cabin or walled tent and get some photography tips from your guide, then head back to your hotel approx 2.30am.

Day 2 Whitehorse    
This morning take a scenic city tour of Whitehorse and learn about its former gold rush glory. Visit the famous SS Klondike, one of two stern wheeling ships that hauled precious cargo, fuel and food as well as passengers up and down the Yukon River between Whitehorse and Dawson City. This evening, head out for your second Northern Lights viewing opportunity, making the most of hot drinks, marshmallows and a roaring bonfire.  

Day 3 Whitehorse    
Today is free to explore Whitehorse by yourself or simply relax at your hotel. At certain times of the year, it is possible to add additional activities, such as dog sledding and the Yukon Wildlife Preserve to your Northern Lights adventure (bookable and payable in advance). This evening is your final chance to see the shimmering lights.

Day 4 Whitehorse    
Transfer to the airport for your onward flight.
