Northern Lights Tour from Yellowknife

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
This 4-hour guided tour takes you on a mission to see one of the world's most famous natural phenomena: The Aurora Borealis! Also known as the Northern Lights, this tour takes you various places outside Yellowknife where city lights can't disturb your mission of experiencing the natural phenomenon.
  • Go with a guide: Hunt for the best Northern Lights viewing locations
  • Explore the Northern Territories in comfort: Hot drinks and snacks included
  • Stress-free, round-trip transport from select Yellowknife hotels
  • Small group size ensures a more memorable experience
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.

Had an amazing outing to explore the Aurora. Did not disappoint. Eddie our tour guide and Joseph the chef and story teller were both very helpful and friendly. Haven’t snowmobiled in 40 Years. Exhilarating!!!
