“…watch the silver dance of the mystic Northern Lights...” ­– Robert Service

From fall until spring, Yukon enjoys spectacular displays of aurora borealis. Thousands of people from across the globe visit the Yukon every year for a chance to see the magical northern lights.

The best show on Earth

Ribbons of glowing green, white and red swirl and dance across the Yukon sky. Join a tour or congregate with the locals away from the city lights to enjoy the spectacle together. Imagine soaking in a hot tub, glass of wine in hand, as the sky pulsates with otherworldly light.

Secrets of the sky

Is it magic? We think so. The northern lights have been inspiring legends for centuries. What exactly creates this magic northern phenomenon? Solar dust forms rings around the polar regions, and these particles get charged by gases in Earth’s upper atmosphere. The result is gas molecules that glow like neon lights. Whether you’re fascinated by the science, intrigued by legends or simply thrilled by the sight, the Yukon is the perfect place to experience aurora magic
