Aurora Viewing Tours

Folklore is abound with stories of the origins of these spellbinding celestial lights. In Finnish they are called “revontulet”, which means “fox fires”, a name derived from an ancient fable of the arctic fox starting fires or spraying up snow with its brush-like tail.

The Aurora Borealis is one of the most beautiful natural phenomena one can experience and chances are excellent that you will see it if you come for a visit to the Yukon in the winter. If you are only in town for a short time, take advantage of our beautiful Northern Lights centre, only 20 minutes out of town.  Located up in the vast expanse of Fish Lake, with no artificial lights around – providing perfect viewing conditions! We offer tours every evening and while it is cold and crisp outside, our authentic yurt will keep you warm and cozy.

We will pick you up at your hotel in Whitehorse and take you to the viewing centre. Pick up time is 9:30-9:55pm. While at the site, we will serve hot drinks, a light snack and share some of the folklore surrounding the Aurora with you. By 2:00 am, you will be back at your hotel still captured by the beauty of the Northern Lights.
