View the northern lights (aurora borealis) from a wilderness lodge in the Yukon


View the amazing spectacle of the aurora borealis from this wilderness lodge in the Yukon. A scenic 35-minute drive (55 km) from Whitehorse, Yukon's capital city, will find you surrounded with nature's best and one of the best places in the world to view the northern lights. The crystal clear waters of Marsh Lake, spectacular mountain views, pristine forests, as well as an abundance of outdoor activities provide opportunities for all. 

This region of the Yukon is considered one of the best in the world for viewing the aurora borealis.  These dancing streamers can be pale green, pink, red and blue. Most often the aurora is greenish in colour, the result of particles streaming into atmosphere at speeds of up to 37,000 miles per second.   

The season for viewing the aurora borealis is anytime from late August to mid April, when daylight hours are at a minimum and dark night skies prevail.  Viewing success is weather dependent and can never be guaranteed but if skies are clear the chances of seeing the lights is good.

Historically, the area was a major transportation route for the Klondike Goldrush of 1898.   This adventure lodge offers a natural log structure that affords luxury accommodation and lifestyle pursuits in a retreat-like setting. Choose from one of the well-appointed guest suites each with their own special comforts. The lodge's great room, library and solariums offer a variety of personal spaces. Enjoy at your leisure the outdoor hot tub and sauna or simply experience Yukon's natural offerings from the spacious deck areas.

For one's adventure appetite, a variety of outdoor pursuits such as dog sledding, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing and snowshoeing are available during the day in the winter. And hiking, canoeing, kayaking and fishing in the fall. This lodge is one of the very few places where you will be able to enjoy the aurora borealis from the comfort of your room.
