Tour Details

Travellers are increasingly seeking tourism “experiences” rather than tourism products. A tourism product is what you buy. A tourism experience is what you remember and we guarantee that Aurora Borealis is unforgettable.

Given there’s a 90 percent probability of viewing the Aurora Borealis when in-season, it’s no wonder that Yellowknife is considered the most popular Aurora destination in North America.

The Aurora offers an entrancing, dramatic display that fascinates all who see it. While it’s spell-binding, it’s not without explanation. In short, it’s science. Aurora are actually the result of collisions between gaseous particles in the earth’s atmosphere with charged particles released from the sun’s atmosphere.  Because earth’s atmosphere is thinnest above the poles, these collisions emit multi-coloured dancing lights in the northern sky.

We keep an eye on the websites of northern lights forecasting agencies who monitor solar activity, the solar wind and earth’s magnetic field to predict the likelihood, locations and intensity of Aurora Borealis in order to provide you with the best viewing opportunities.

Fall Season – August 15, 2018 to September 30. 2018

Cost – $109.00 per person plus 5% GST. Children 12 and under $49.00 plus GST. 

We specialize in small intimate tours. We also recommend the fall as our favorite time of the year to visit the Aurora. The reason for this is the warmer temperatures. During our fall tours we will travel to various locations seeking the clearest skies. There will be refreshments and hearty snacks served during the tours.

Guests will be picked up at accommodations beginning at 10 PM and will return to accommodations for 2 AM. On rare occasions the Aurora will come out early, we will be in contact with our guests and adjust our tour times in those cases, if all parties agree.

Our guests are welcome to bring personal beverages on board if they choose. We do have a limited number of tri-pods which are available for use to be shared.

Clothing – We recommend bug jackets, rain gear and warm clothing. While we hope for reasonable Fall conditions, our weather can fluctuate greatly.

Coach – Equipped with a washroom, full screen TV (we provide films on board while waiting for the Aurora) as well as an extensive Northern Library on board.

Winter Dates 2018/19 – December 10 – April 10

Cost – $109.00 per person plus 5% GST. Children 12 and under $49.00 plus GST. 

We will visit various locations during the winter tours, again seeking the clearest skies locations.  Our tour will end up with a light midnight meal in a heated location. TBD.

Guests will be picked up at accommodations beginning at 10 PM and return to accommodations for 2 AM.  On rare occasions the Aurora will come out early, we will be in contact with our guests and adjust our tour times in those cases, if all parties agree.

Our guests are welcome to bring personal beverages on board if they choose. We do have a limited number of tri-pods which are available for use to be shared.
