- 5 Days
Yukon aurora viewing combines just the right amount of excitement, inspiration and comfort. Spend your days visiting museums, sightseeing and sampling local cuisine in Whitehorse. Spend your nights watching for the northern lights. Try dogmushing and snowshoeing, take in a music festival, or just savour the quiet darkness from a cozy cabin or lodge.
Day 1 – Welcome to our Winter Wonderland
Whether you're staying in a hotel, lodge or cabin, the next few days is all about snowy fun and chasing northern lights. If you didn't pre-arrange winter gear with a tour operator, you can visit local retailers to buy what you need. Plan to join scheduled sightseeing, outdoor activities and aurora tours, or explore on your own.
Day 5 – Dabble in Yukon Arts and Culture
Whitehorse is full of great shops and galleries that are open all winter. Catch up on your sleep, hang out with the locals in our lively cafés, and take a stroll down Main Street. Keep an eye out for an authentic piece of local art or special memento of your Yukon aurora adventure.
Whether you're looking for a secluded cabin in the woods, or a lively hostel in downtown Whitehorse, you'll find it here.
