We'll welcome you at the airport and transfer you to your Hotel in downtown Whitehorse. The hotel is located within walking distance of all attractions, restaurants, banks and stores. We will have an informational meeting and registration for optional tours at the hotel. Take your time for fitting the winter clothing (optional), shopping and dinner on your own. At 10 pm departure for Aurora viewing. A cozy, heated cabin or wall tent with hot drinks and snacks makes your Aurora viewing even more enjoyable. Return to hotel around 2.30 am.
In the morning at 10.00 am we are having a city tour including the following stops: Main Street, Train Depot of the White Pass and Yukon Route, Visitor Reception Center, Log Skyscraper, Log Church, Sternwheeler SS Klondike, Fish ladder, Schwatka Lake and some residential areas. Between 1.00pm and 4.00pm, we will bring you to the Northern Lights Resort & Spa. Relax, unwind and soak up the peaceful ambiance. Located just 20 minutes south of Whitehorse, this little piece of paradise is the Yukon´s newest get-away destination - a hideaway located in a quiet open countryside close to the Yukon River, surrounded by pine forests and ringed by mountains. Built from massive Douglas Fir and to meet European standards by your German-Canadian hosts, the 3600 sq foot lodge features a luxurious great room for guest gathering, relaxing, breakfast and dinner use with a dramatic panoramic view of the Yukon River valley and the mountain range. Guests stay in the cozy guest room with large en-suite bathroom in the lodge or in a well-appointed 320 sq/ft. cottage featuring a large living/bedroom with fireplace and en-suite bathroom. The spa & wellness area is located in the main building and features a finish sauna, infrared sauna, rest room.
The surroundings are perfect for relaxing in the guest lounge, the large deck or the privacy of your own cottage, enjoying the spectacular views of the Northern Lights in winter. The open area surrounding the lodge allows unobscured views of the soaring Aurora!
Wake up to a healthy European-style breakfast and the lodge in front of the fireplace. Talk with your host about breakfast times. Since you will be up late the night before, you may not want to have breakfast too early. Go for a snow shoe hike, or plan a day out dog sledding (optional tours). Enjoy the sauna. Or simply relax on the large deck under the breathtaking northern sky. Either on day 3 or 4: from the resort, we drive approx. 55 km to the Wildlife Preserve. Excellent guided tour and great opportunities to view and photograph wildlife in its natural habitat: Dall Sheep, Bighorn Sheep, Mountain Goat, Deer, Elk, Woodland Caribou, Wood Bison, Musk-Ox and Moose may be seen, usually up close!
In the evening, after dinner, you may stay up late again to view the Aurora Borealis.
