  • Stress-free, round-trip transport from select Yellowknife hotels

What to Expect
Start the evening with pickup from the doorstep of select Yellowknife accommodations. Sit back and relax as your guide handles navigation on the drive into the backcountry.

On arrival, head to the evening’s best Aurora Borealis viewing locations. Going with a guide is essential, as these locations are subject to change based on weather and time of year.

Your guide explains how and why the Northern Lights are formed in this region of Canada as you gaze up at the dancing lights. Get help capturing the perfect photo before returning to the warmth of the vehicle.

For your comfort and convenience, snacks and hot drinks are provided at certain stops. After a night of exploring and light-hunting, doze in the van as your guide drives you back to your Yellowknife hotel. Upgrade for a multi-night tour to increase your chances of spotting the lights.
