Yellowknife Aurora Hunting Winter Getaway

Experience the magic of the Northern Lights with an Indigenous guide

Perched on the northern edge of Great Slave Lake deep in Canada’s North, Yellowknife makes for an unforgettable winter getaway. Get to know the eclectic city during the day and head out at night to see the dancing Northern Lights.

There’s nothing like visiting the Far North in the quiet of the winter. Have a pint with the locals at the Woodyard Brewhouse, try arctic char sashimi at the local sushi spot and take a trip on one of the ice roads for which the Northwest Territories is famous. The highlight of your trip is sure to be the nightly Aurora hunting tours, which are led by an Indigenous guide who not only knows all the best spots to view the Aurora but has great stories to tell as well.

4 Days from $1165/person CAD

Itinerary

DAY 1

Welcome to Yellowknife!
Once you arrive in the Northwest Territories, you’ll be transferred to your hotel to check in. Explore the city at your leisure. Yellowknife is a walkable city but there is a taxi service available for those in need of it. Explore the small downtown core that has some unique shops and an incredible array of restaurants offering cuisine from around the world.

In the late evening, you’ll be picked up at your hotel for your first Aurora Hunting Tour! Your experienced guide will drive to various locations that have amazing vantage points to see the Lights. Snacks and hot beverages will be available. This is not a stationary tour — you’ll move around to different locations, searching for the beautiful Aurora. If you’re lucky and the Aurora is visible that night, your guide will assist you with taking some very memorable photos.

Overnight at the Explorer Hotel or similar

DAY 2

Today you will get to experience Yellowknife with a local guide who has grown up in the scenic city. See the famous Oldtown district where Yellowknife originally started almost 90 years ago and learn about the area’s unique history and rich Indigenous culture. Your tour will include a visit to the downtown area as well as the Visitor’s Centre where you’ll receive an official Yellowknife pin and a North of 60 Certificate.

One of the best parts of the tour is the local knowledge your guide will provide — it is like visiting an old friend and taking a trip through his/her hometown. Colourful stories guaranteed!

Enjoy free time in the afternoon to explore at your leisure or head back to your hotel for a rest before the night’s Aurora activities.

In the evening, you’ll be picked up once again for a night of Aurora hunting. On clear nights, you’ll be amazed at the stars and the stunning milky way.
