To the north an eerie, sulfurous-green sheen begins to ripple into the night sky. It arcs itself 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.
During the day you can "spice-up" your winter experience by booking half or full day tours of dog mushing, snow mobiling, ice fishing & snow shoeing or sample it all with our popular "Winter Adventure Activity Package". You will find detailed information about all your options in our "DAYtours" section.
