4 Days / 3 Nights Roundtrip Yellowknife

Price from$1,297

The Northwest Territories is known as the "Aurora Capital of the World" and Yellowknife is directly beneath the aurora oval, and one of the world's best places to experience the aurora without light or noise pollution from cities or road traffic.

Almost every night in winter, Yellowknife's clear skies dance and shimmer with the greens, blues and whites of this incredible spectacle.

There are two great aurora viewing seasons: Fall (mid-August to early October) and winter (mid- December to mid-April).

Yellowknife is set in the wondrous natural surroundings of Great Slave Lake, a remarkably modern city where you can experience rustic nature and traditional culture without forgoing urban amenities.

Whether you are driving on an ice road; dancing under the aurora borealis; enjoying a dogsled ride; golfing under the midnight sun; fishing for world class trophies; or watching the creation of a brilliant northern diamond, you will enjoy the character of the city and feel the warmth of our Northern hospitality.
