Northern Lights of the Yukon

Being so close to Canada’s Arctic Circle means that the best attraction of these territories, without a doubt, is the stunning Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis. With some of the longest seasons available for viewing – from August to April, Yukon boasts incredible un-obscured views of the mesmerizing skies as they burst with a magnificent kaleidoscope of neon colours.

Selected departure dates are available between August and April.
