VIEW / Close tour itinerary

Day 1: We will 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 10pm 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 2.30am.

Day 2: Today you will be flying to the world famous Gold Rush town – the historic town of Dawson City. Your flight departs Whitehorse at 8.15am and your hotel shuttle bus will bring you to the airport about 1.5-2 hours prior to departure. You will be greeted when you get off the plane in Dawson City by a long time resident and local expert and culture and history. Located at the mouth of confluence of the Klondike and the mighty Yukon rivers, Dawson City is a site rich in Tr’ondek Hwech’in and gold mining culture, complete with a modern day mining economy, a vibrant tourism and arts scene, and a colorful population of 1800 residents

Upon arrival into town, guests check in to their hotel in downtown Dawson City.

Now the real adventure begins. Each night we will get a chance to witness the magnificent Aurora Borealis display in the late night sky. Guests are taken to the owner’s homestead property where small group sizes and the quiet of the Yukon winter nights allow time to connect to the land and to stories of its people and history. Enjoy a heated yurt and hot snacks and beverages for a chance to warm up – enjoy the great outdoors and the cold winter night for the true Aurora hunter!

Day 3: Each day brings a new experience in the community of Dawson City. Experience the rich Gold Rush and Tr’ondek Hwech’in history through a driving tour of the town and the gold fields. Later enjoy an inside glimpse into some of Dawson City’s oldest buildings on your historic walking tour hosted by Parks Canada. With this uniquely Canadian experience, guests experience a balanced blend of adventures, scenery, history and the very best of Northern hospitality!

In the evening, join us again for another Aurora Viewing Tour.

Day 4: Sleep in today or spend some time exploring the town on foot today. Since you are accommodated right in downtown, all of the downtown core is easy accessible. In the afternoon, we will transfer to the airport for your flight back to Whitehorse. You will take the complimentary airport shuttle bus to your hotel and at 10pm we will depart for another night of Aurora viewing at the Northern Tales Trading Post. Return to hotel around 2.30 am.
