About This Trip

There is nothing more enchanting, more completely mind-blowing than sitting under the ethereal beauty of the Aurora Borealis. As it breathes exquisite translucent greens and pinks across the inky-black sky, you are completely enchanted, like there is nothing else in the world. To experience this astral phenomenon at the peak of its glory, head to the world’s finest Aurora viewing spot. 

 

Yellowknife in Northern Canada still retains the air of being a real frontier town. With its multicultural and friendly population, comprising of many different First Nation tribes, a rustic beauty still persists in Yellowknife. Picturesque, colourful houseboats adorn the waters of Great Slave Lake and aside from the occasional drone of a bush plane, you will bathe in the silence of the wilderness. However, there is a vibrant nightlife and surprising art scene in this northern outpost, with mining money bringing bigger names to perform here than you would expect. 

 

Staying in Yellowknife is a joy, but the real crux of your trip is the time you will spend out at Aurora Village. Situated in one of the world’s truly wild places, Aurora Village has zero light pollution, giving the perfect black canvas for the Aurora Borealis to create its magic. Congregate in heated teepees, kitted out in your supplies, sub-zero outfits and prepare yourselves for three nights of sheer wonder under the most beautiful skies on earth.

highlights

Anyone who has ever seen the Aurora Borealis will attest to their power. It is like being hypnotised by nature, you start looking at the lights and then hours later you snap out of your reverie feeling entirely relaxed and much more connected to the world. 

 

We wanted to take this feeling and amplify it as much as possible. We sought out the finest Aurora Borealis watching camp in the world and added as many extras as we could to give our customers the finest experience possible. Aurora Village is unique in so many ways. From traditional heated teepees out in the freezing cold wilderness, you will gaze up into the flickering night sky. You can opt to have heated seats for your nightly viewing, but you will be supplied with cozy sub-zero gear to wear too. 

 

It is not only the Aurora that is spectacular up here. We include a tour of Yellowknife, a supremely interesting frontier town, and there are various additional hikes, dogsled routes and snowshoe experiences to fill your days and further explore this incredible wilderness. 


location

This really is one of the world's last untouched areas of wilderness and it is a complete privilege to spend time here. As soon as you fly into Yellowknife you will be met by one of the team from Aurora Village. They will transfer you to your hotel in Yellowknife and get you fitted with your arctic clothing, they will whisk you off to Aurora Village for your first night’s viewing. This will form the pattern for the next few days, and at the end of the trip, the team will take you back to the airport and bid you a fond farewell. 


facilities

A true northern hotel, the Days Inn and Suites is a 3-star establishment in the centre of Yellowknife. As well as all the amenities you would expect from a traditional hotel, there are a few extras to partner with the extreme temperatures and lifestyle of the north.
