ABOUT THIS REGION  AURORA BOREALIS VIEWING

Tours to view the aurora borealis from Yellowknife

Experience fabulous aurora borealis viewing near Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. The capital of Canada’s Northwest Territories, Yellowknife, is located directly under the ‘Aurora Oval’, a narrow band encircling the polar reaches of the globe in which the mysterious coloured lights of the aurora borealis are at their most brilliant. Coupled with its clear nights, this favorable geographic location makes Yellowknife consistently one of the best places in the world for aurora viewing. The ideal location of this city is the reason clients, who book at least three consecutive nights of aurora viewing, have enjoyed a success rate of at least 95% over the past five years.

Tours to view the aurora borealis from Yellowknife

From the strategically located viewing facilities outside of the city and far away from any man-made light, guests experience massive curtains of light that flash dramatically across the night sky, swirling and twisting into magnificent coronas. The aurora borealis, or northern lights, are actually giant electrical storms formed by solar flares from the sun that react with the Earth’s magnetic field. Although they are usually about 100-500 kilometers above the Earth’s upper atmosphere, in Canada’s North, our guests often feel that they can reach up and touch these spectacular light displays! The viewing location is largely made up of tepees, kept warm for your enjoyment, while waiting for the aurora. Guests can learn about the scientific and legendary element of the aurora borealis and receive information on how to photograph them. There are heated seats for your aurora viewing comfort. Food and drinks are served nightly in our dining hall. We have designed the viewing area to maximize the viewing pleasure of our guests and introduce them to our culture, the northern environment and offer them some good wholesome fun!
