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.
