Venture out beyond the light pollution of the city and into the frozen wilds of the Northern Territories for a chance to see the spectacular phenomenon of the aurora borealis. Admire the elusive, luminous show from a location close to the Arctic Circle, snapping photos and warming up with hot drinks throughout the night.
Get picked up from your hotel in Yellowknife at night and travel with your guide into the wilderness, leaving the city behind as the darkness deepens. Keep your eyes on the sky and watch for the flickering, colorful dance of the Northern Lights in the star-studded sky. Just 250 miles (400 km) south of the Arctic Circle, you're perfectly situated for viewing this surreal show.
Nibble on snacks as you watch or wait, and sip hot beverages to fend off the cold. Your guide shares facts and legends about the aurora, and also offers photography tips so you can capture the best possible images of the Northern Lights.
