Yellowknife is the gateway to the Northwest Territories and the arctic region of Canada. The township sits on the edge of Great Slave Lake, the deepest lake in North America. Aurora viewing in Yellowknife is one of the greatest natural wonders in northwest Canada – and the world’s Northern Lights mecca.

Aurora viewing in Yellowknife ranges from fly-in, fly-out wilderness lodges to unique Yellowknife-based viewing cabins or Indigenous owned heated teepee experiences.

The Northern Lights are so frequent in the NWT due to Canada’s subarctic crystal-clear nights, ultra-low humidity, and a perfect location directly beneath the Earth’s band of maximal Auroral activity (the “Auroral oval”). They are the strongest in the word, the colours are brighter, displays last linger, the movements more elaborate. Winter is one of the best times to see this experience when all the lakes are frozen over.

Combine your Canadian ski holiday with an expert-led trip to see the Northern Lights. To rugged “aurora-hunting” adventures to pampered stays at luxury lodges. Put a different spin on the night-life experience.
