See the dancing Northern Lights in the Yukon and immerse yourself in winter adventures in the Canadian Rockies!
This the second run for this trip. In February this year, the group had an amazing experience on 2 spectacular nights seeing the Northern Lights actually dancing in the open night sky! The lights filled the whole sky, it was a truly memorable experience.
As you will have to fly into Calgary in Canada to take a domestic flight to the Yukon for the Northern Lights, and Calgary being the gateway to the beautiful Canadian Rockies, it is your best chance to take in the sights of the beautiful mountain landscapes in the Rockies before heading to the Yukon. After all, you flew all the way to Calgary and it will be a pity if you don't see for yourself this stunning beauty of mother nature. This trip will be like going on 2 tours on one trip - the Canadian Rockies, and the Northern Lights.
On this trip, you will get a chance to experience the splendor of a snowy winter wonderland in the Canadian Rockies and catch the beautiful winter landscape made so much more magnificent with the mountains in the background. You will get to see the world-renowned Lake Louise and visit Banff, the famous town of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks, which is on the UNESCO world heritage list. In Banff, you will ride the gondola up Sulphur Mountain for views that will take your breath away! Then discover the secret in the Cave and Basin tour that led to the discovery of this amazing mountain national park. Your winter adventures will also bring you the wonders of ice-walking in a canyon, the thrill of tubing down a mountain (see video under Day 4 in Itinerary) and get on a wildlife tour in this snowy landscape - learning about how animlas survive in the cold wintry season. Optional tours like dog-sledding, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and caving can also be included during your adventure in the Rockies.
The second part of this trip will see you board a flight to Yukon into the town of Whitehorse where you will have the opportunity of your lifetime to catch the spectacular Northern Lights – the Aurora Borealis. For 2 nights, you will be transported from your hotel to a heated cabin or wall tent, out in the open darkness, to catch the Aurora Borealis. During your days in Whitehorse, you will visit the Yukon Wildlife Preserve where you can watch and photograph the Dall Sheep, Bighorn Sheep, Mountain Goat, Deer, Elk, Woodland Caribou, Wood Bison, Musk-Ox and Moose – all in their natural habitat. You will also get the chance to soak in the Takhini Hot Springs in an open Yukon winter landscape. (See the video link below about how funny it can be in the hot springs)
