The Premium Northern Lights Tour Experience
The air is as fresh as the night sky is dark. The noise of the city sits far behind you. It’s quiet. It’s peaceful. And then, before you know it, the shimmering shades of green, blue and red begin their dance across the sky. This is no fireworks show; it’s the Aurora Borealis – the most breathtaking natural spectacle in the North.
On our Northern Lights Viewing Tour, we combine premium comfort with the full Aurora Viewing experience. Together, we’ll enjoy hot chocolate and even roast marshmallows over a campfire, all in our authentic, heated Aurora Basecamp outside the city.
Over the course of this quiet, private evening with your small group of up to 14 guests, we’ll also share information about the Northern lights with you. In addition, to help you capture this incomparable northern beauty, we’ll give you tips on aurora photography.
We will pick you up from your hotel in Downtown Whitehorse at 10:00 PM / 10:30 PM (only August / September). From there, we’ll drive for about 25 minutes to the heated Aurora Basecamp facilities outside of town. Afterwards, we will return you to your accommodations at around 2:00 AM.
While the northern lights are always in the night sky, their intensity is dependent on solar activity. Clear skies are also necessary in order to catch a perfect view of the mystical aurora borealis.
We will always strive to ensure our customers have the best possible experience, but unfortunately, we have no power over the weather. Thus, we cannot always guarantee a successful sighting of the Northern Lights.
Despite climate change, temperatures in the Canadian North can drop to -30C and colder. Wear adequate clothing (layers) and make sure to protect the uncovered parts of your body, especially your hands and face, when taking photos.
Winter Rental Clothes are available upon request.
