Aurora Borealis Tour in the Yukon

See the Northern Lights & Wildlife in Whitehorse

 Travel to Whitehorse, Yukon, to enjoy majestic wildlife and nights rich with the magic of the Northern Lights. You’ll discover scenic Whitehorse, the Yukon’s capital, surrounded by endless mountains and travel away from the city lights to take in the Aurora Borealis. On successive evenings, head just outside the city centre to an idyllic Northern Lights viewing location: the AuroraCentre. The evenings will feature relaxing Northern Lights viewing besides a cozy wood stove or roaring campfire.

You will also visit the Yukon Wildlife Preserve to view and photograph wildlife in its natural habitat. Keep reading below for more details, but please also get in touch if you have any questions.

Itinerary

DAY 1: ARRIVAL WHITEHORSE

Arrive at your hotel, which is located in the heart of the city not far from the banks of the Yukon River. Historic but trendy, Whitehorse is small and easy to explore on foot or by vehicle. Later in the evening, we set out to the AuroraCentre where we’ll seek the sight of northern lights.

DAY 2: WILDLIFE VIEWING & NORTHERN LIGHTS VIEWING

In the late morning, discover the best of Whitehorse on a city tour with character. Visit the SS Klondike National Historic Site to see one of the last great paddle wheelers that plied the Yukon River system until the 1950s; explore the Old Log Church, the oldest building in Whitehorse; and visit the unique Log Cabin Skyscraper, a three-story tower made completely out of logs. And when you’ve seen all these top sites, stroll Main Street to browse through all the shops, galleries and cafés.

We will visit the Yukon Wildlife Preserve for close views of many of the Yukon’s large mammal species including elk, moose, mule deer, caribou, Dall’s sheep, mountain goats, bison and even the musk-ox of the high Arctic, all in their natural surroundings.

After a relaxed dinner in Whitehorse, you’ll be back on the road again to seek views of the stunning Northern Lights. Relax in sheltered comfort, or under the starry sky beside a warm fire at one of our tailor-made aurora viewing locations.
