The best time to visit the Yukon for the dancing northern lights is between September and April. While tour operators can't guarantee you'll see the aurora borealis, they will do everything they can to make your visit here memorable. They can direct you to the best viewing spots, share aurora lore and culture, and make sure you stay warm.

Aurora forecasting technology also helps increase the odds. The higher the activity level, the higher the probability of northern lights. So if the green aurora band over the Earth is bright and dancing, throw on your boots and jacket, get yourself outside and look up.

We love saying "interplanetary magnetism," "solar wind" and "particle density."

We take our northern lights seriously and have developed the tool below to help predict when you can see this amazing phenomenon. With scientific data collected from the Space Weather Predicition Center, we're able to forecast the aurora every 15 minutes.

Pay particular attention to the activity level bar. The higher the activity level, the higher the probability of northern lights. So if the green aurora band over the Earth is bright and dancing, throw on your boots and jacket, get yourself outside and look up.
