Wilderness Aurora Viewing - 2 or 3 Nights
Magical and mystical - Northern Lights with a touch of wilderness luxury!
Winter nights in the Yukon are famous for their crisp cold air and dancing Northern Lights. This Aurora Package is a unique opportunity for an intimate and exclusive Northern Lights experience.
The 2 or 3 nights Aurora Viewing are our most popular programs and give you a taste of the Wild, all the while being pampered at our Lodge, far away from any light pollution. Tagish Lake is oriented North-South and our viewing site is in the middle of the frozen lake from where you have unobscured views. Wrapped in blankets, in front of a crackling campfire and a hot cup of tea in your hands, you are waiting for the show to unfold. The 3-feet thick ice cracks under your feet and sometimes we in the Yukon can be this exciting?!
