Escape to a place where dog-sleds replace Ubers, castles are crafted from white powder snow, and the skies light up with one of the world’s most dazzling natural displays. In Yellowknife, Northwest Territories you can experience an adventure like never before alongside local expert based tour and travel company Arctic Tours Canada.
Yellowknife, dubbed the aurora capital city of the world, offers a higher number of days to see the northern lights than most travel destinations — starting from mid August and ending in late April. As a result, it is the perfect place to take in this stunning display while also discovering some of the Arctic’s most unique experiences.
Join Arctic Tours Canada on a three, four, or five night northern lights vacation. Arctic tours Canada is Yellowknife’s top-rated tour company offering customized northern lights holiday packages inclusive of hotel options, nightly northern lights watching tours, and optional add-on day tours. In autumn, after a night of observing the Aurora Borealis, travellers can sign up for exciting day-time activities such as city tours, hiking, wildlife buffalo viewing, helicopter tours and dog mushing on wheels. In winter, Yellowknife’s winter wonderland comes to life with opportunities for dog- sledding, snowmobiling, fun at winter festivals, ice fishing, a snowshoeing-ice cave tour and more.
While winters in Yellowknife are known to be very cold, never fear, a winter clothing rental service is available that offers Canada Goose/OSC parkas to keep you warm in the harsh arctic weather. The best time to plan your Yellowknife holiday is at least three months prior to northern lights, even earlier for some peak season months, as the popular equinox months and special holidays quickly get sold out six months to a year in advance.
Book your Yellowknife holiday today with Arctic Tours Canada and experience all the Yellowknife diamond capital city of North America has to offer.
