THE AURORA BOREALIS IN YELLOWKNIFE
Gaze in wonder as the sky comes alive. A phenomenal experience.
THE AURORA BOREALIS IN YELLOWKNIFE
YELLOWKNIFE
4 Days MID AUGUST 2018 - APRIL 2019

Watching the Aurora dance above me in Yellowknife was a phenomenal, almost fairytale like, experience that I will never forget. It was so much more intense and dramatic than I expected, that I simply didn’t want to leave. Four of our Arctic expeditions coincide with excellent Aurora viewing in Yellowknife and I encourage everyone booking on those trips to add an Aurora package to your holiday, as it is only a 2hr flight from Edmonton, where several Arctic trips start and end. As with all nature experiences, nothing is nothing guaranteed so our packages are 3 nights, giving you a great chance to see the Aurora, but if you have extra time, you should add another night or 2, as it’s a long way to go back too.

Itinerary

Upon arrival in Yellowknife, grab a taxi to your chosen accommodation. This afternoon set out to explore the town. Definitely call into the visitor centre, and adjacent museum to get a great overview of the town (pop’n 20,000), officially settled 82 years ago, but inhabited
by Dene for thousands of years. Depart this evening for your first Aurora viewing.

After a well-deserved sleep in, take a scenic tour out to Cameron Falls. Heading out of town you’ll visit the Giant Mine and the Yellowknife River to hear the River Legend, a Dene story dating to a time when it’s said giants roamed the landscape. Travel along the picturesque Ingraham trail to the trailhead and hike just over 1km to see Cameron Falls, followed by a picnic
lunch. Those feeling energetic could extend the tour with an excursion to the ramparts, another 8 km past the falls. In August and September as Fall arrives the  changing colours of the foilage are a fantastic sight. This evening depart again for more Aurora viewing.

There’s plenty to do in town, from meeting local artisans, walking trails and excellent cafes. Make sure you take a walk around the historic Old Town with its great shopping and food. This evening embark on your final Aurora viewing.

Transfer to the airport for onward travel, or maybe add another day.
