About This Trip

To sit beneath the Aurora Borealis is an experience like no other on the planet. This mystical light ebbs and flows above you, casting an ethereal glow over the beautiful landscapes around you. This is a chance to escape the trappings of the modern world and get in touch with something so otherworldly and spiritual that you will return feeling cleansed, relaxed and stunned. 

 

Seeing the Northern Lights is so special, that it deserves a special place to see them. Somewhere with zero light pollution, somewhere with tailormade viewing locations, customised to protect you from the cold and provide a delightful evening’s viewing. We have picked the delightful town of Whitehorse, high in the spectacular Yukon, not only for its specialised Aurora viewing, but for the delightful town and unbelievably beautiful wild space it sits in. 

 

After spending two nights in the beautiful city of Vancouver, exploring its unique culture and wonderful restaurant scene, you will board a domestic flight that will take you up into the wild Yukon. There, your local guide will meet you and your exploration of this untouched wilderness will begin. After exploring this frontier town, getting to know how it works and meeting its delightful residents, your guide will take you out to adventure through the wild countryside. You will witness vast herds of elk, caribou and moose, to name but a few and then get some time to relax in the incredible natural hot springs. Every night will end with a life-changing Aurora viewing before you are taken back to your superb hotel in Whitehorse to slip into a night filled with colourful Aurora dreams.

highlights

There are so many incredible natural wonders in the world and it is a pleasure to see any of them. However, there is something so completely different about sitting out under vast, black skies to watch the dance of the Aurora Borealis. It connects to us somewhere deep and ancient and really does change how we view the world from then on. There is arguably nothing more beautiful on the planet. 

 

We wanted to make sure that your access to the Northern Lights was as special as possible, which is why we chose Whitehorse. This delightful town really is in the middle of nowhere, the most beautiful nowhere we have ever come across. The stark beauty of its surroundings makes it an incredible location for wildlife spotting and your local expert guide and tracker will ensure you see the grandest beasts in the region. Add to this some time in the magical, natural hot springs and you have a trip that will change the way you see the world.
