Northern Light Hunting

Guaranteed Departure

Description

Seeing northern lights, also known as aurora borealis, depends on two main factors: solar activity and weather. Given that we cannot control what our Sun does, we stay on the move to try to eliminate the weather factor and find the clear skies each night!

Day after day

Aurora Borealis is what makes the North so magical and legendary. This physical phenomenon is visible from Whitehorse with a higher than 90% of success for a visit of at least 3 days.

Together, we will be on the move, finding the best location to see the lights that night. We also have the opportunity to look at the stars and constellations so we don't leave any of the night sky magic untapped!

Your guide has been photographing northern lights for many years and will be happy to teach you a few tricks if you want to take photos yourself.

We pick you up at your accommodation, anywhere in Whitehorse, at 10pm for a return around 2am. We provide hot drinks and snacks.

For same-day bookings, please contact us before 3pm.

Travelers' reviews

"Max’s tour of the Northern Lights was one of the best tours I’ve ever taken. Max: -was flexible in scheduling when I had to switch days -was thoughtful and considerate of my well-being the entire time, providing hot water bottles, blankets (you MUST still dress warmly or you will freeze, no joke), homemade cookies, tea, comfortable chairs -knew of the best secluded spot to view the lights (a frozen lake!) -took unbelievably amazing and beautiful photos of me in front of the lights and the moon -even after a few hours, drove us to an additional spot to see if the lights would get brighter -gave us an astronomy lesson and pointed out the constellations i was so glad to not be packed into a tour bus of 50 people to some overcrowded place. If you want personalized, expert, attentive service, go with Max. He is passionate and caring and will give it his all to make it your best experience."

"Max was a wonderful, knowledgeable guide for our Aurora Borealis tour. He knew where to take us for a fantastic viewing of the Northern Lights and took pictures of us and of the lights. The van was warm and comfortable and we loved the tea, cookies and the hot water bottles. Very thoughtful and personal experience. Thank you!"
