4 nights: Northern Lights Group tour

Northern Lights Group tour aurora borealis 2 - Aurora Borealis

No plans this coming winter? How about 4 nights viewing the glorious Northern Lights in the Yukon! To the north an eerie, sulphurous-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 the viewings described 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.
