ESCAPE THE CITY AND WITNESS THE MAGIC OF THE NORTHERN LIGHTS ON THIS BUCKETLIST EXPERIENCE.
Yellowknife is one of the best places for trips to see the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) in Canada. Set deep in the Canadian wilderness, away from the bustle and light pollution of the city, you’ll get a front row seat to watch the dancing lights across the night sky in this remote and rustic lodge. Spend daylight hours taking in spectacular scenery and enjoy a variety of outdoor activities before settling in at night for one of the most unforgettable light shows you’ll ever witness.
Starting at CAD $2,766 (+ 5% tax and 10% gratuities). See packages for details.
