The Great Aurora Tent Tour

Yellowknife Aurora Tour

Experience the Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories in a truly northern setting. Enjoy the great outdoors with the comfort of a heated tent and woodstove.

Travel out of the city of Yellowknife along a remote road to a secluded location untouched by anyone else where you will find a private lake for viewing the Aurora Borealis. During your experience, a canvas tent will be heated up making it a cozy spot for you to warm up while waiting for the new showing of Northern Light.

While on this tour you could be treated to a hot beverage, northern inspired snacks or even be taught how to make fried bannock depending on your guide.
