A relaxing winter vacation in the Yukon

From Vancouver, fly to Whitehorse, the capital city of Canada’s Yukon territory, and enjoy four nights at the rural Northern Lights Resort and Spa. Each night, watch as the colours of the aurora light up the sky, above snow-covered trees, and mountain peaks. Warm up in the sauna, go dogsledding, see the highlights of the city, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions

Although Whitehorse, and the Yukon in general, is an incredible spot for Northern Llghts viewing, the lights aren’t visible every night. Your chances are high, but because this is nature, nothing is guaranteed.

The two main ways to get to the Yukon are by car or by plane. Most travellers either fly into Whitehorse or drive up from B.C.

You can photograph the Northern Lights, but you will need a tripod and preferably a DSLR camera where you can control the shutter speed. A wide angle lens is also recommended to capture their full scope.

The Northern Lights are most commonly a greenish-yellow hue, though they can appear pink, red, blue and even violet.

Either winter or fall is the best season for viewing the Northern Lights in Canada. During these seasons, there are extended periods of darkness.

Yes! In spite of its cold and snowy reputation, Canada is one of the world’s best destinations for winter sports and activities, from downhill skiing and heli-skiing (invented in Canada), to dog sledding and snowshoeing. Canada is also one of the top places on the planet to see the Northern Lights, with best viewing between November and March.

As Northern Lights viewing experiences take place at night, there is plenty of time in the day for other activities. Tour and activity options depend on the season and the location. In the winter, go dogsledding, snowshoeing, snowmobiling or ice fishing. In the fall, go hiking, wildlife viewing, and sightseeing. There are opportunities to learn about local culture and history too.

Our vacations are not typically escorted. You are not tied into a specific group, or a rigid daily itinerary but rather have the freedom of independent travel.

This allows you, with the help of our travel experts, to personalize your trip to suit your interests, timeframe, and budget. We’ll guide you through the process and provide the reassurance of seamless connections, customer service support, and scheduled activities tailored to your taste.

An exception to this is our Northern Lights vacations in Churchill. These are hosted trips. On these trips, you will be with the same group for each day of your trip and have a daily activity schedule. A local guide will be with you and almost all meals are included.
