Northern Lights Tour

Aurora Borealis from Whitehorse, Yukon | CA-NT301

Enjoy the beauty and mystery of the northern lights in and around the city of Whitehorse

Overview

To the north an eerie, sulfurous-green sheen begins to ripple into the night sky. It arcs itself into an ebb and flow, slowly growing, then suddenly bursts across the full expanse of the night sky waving and dancing as if it were happy. The spectacular and mystical Northern Lights and viewings are common in the Yukon.
