The experience at the Aurora Inn includes the most comfortable rooms in Dawson City, freshly prepared dinners and breakfasts with the chance to meet the chef, and top notch hospitality.

Now the real adventure begins. Each night we will get a chance to witness the magnificent Aurora Borealis display in the late night sky. Guests are taken to the owner’s homestead property where small group sizes and the quiet of the Yukon winter nights allow time to connect to the land and to stories of its people and history. Enjoy a heated yurt and hot snacks and beverages for a chance to warm up – enjoy the great outdoors and the cold winter night for the true Aurora hunter!

Each day brings a new experience in the community of Dawson City. Experience the rich Gold Rush and Tr’ondek Hwech’in history through a driving tour of the town and the gold fields.
