One of the prime places in the whole of the Yukon for uninterrupted nightly viewing of the fabulous Aurora Borealis. But what do you do during the daytime?
As its name implies, the Northern Lights Resort and Spa specialises in treating its visitors to a nightly display of the natural phenomenon known as the Aurora Borealis – the world’s largest magic lantern. The open area surrounding the lodge allows uninhibited viewing, and you can even rent high-end DSLR cameras with low-light, wide angle zoom lenses so you can capture the terrific sky effects in full.
Specify the Northern Lights Resort and Spa for your tailor-made holiday to Canada and you’ll find that daytime can be pretty exciting too. You can tour the wilderness of the Yukon, learning about its wildlife and infamous Klondike Gold Rush. You can visit hot springs and beautiful lakes, wander round the sights of Whitehorse or go snow-shoeing and skiing across untamed countryside.
