It is said that in the Yukon 'north is not just a place, but a state of mind' and once you have experienced this breathtakingly vast and beautiful landscape it is easy to see why. The Yukon has very much a 'last frontier' feel to it. This is the place where the moose, caribou and bear population far outnumber the humans, where snow-topped mountain ranges tower above you, where the winter night sky is frequently illuminated by dancing Northern Lights and where the discovery of a single gold nugget in a creek sparked one of the biggest gold rushes ever known.

On this Northern Lights holiday, we offer a taste of this incredible landscape but, by the end of your stay, you will have enjoyed some of the unending wilderness that makes up the province as well as hopefully witnessing the unique phenomenon of the Aurora Borealis.

During your relaxed adventure, you will stay at three different accommodations. The first will be the remote and welcoming Northern Lights Resort and Spa where you will stay in a cosy cabin set in the snow, or a beautifully presented guest room attached to the main lodge. Here you will be able to not only relax by the fire but make the most of the spacious Aurora viewing area outside the hotel, which offers unobstructed views of the night sky. Your second accommodation will be in Dawson City, a gold rush town with a fascinating history and a delightful charm and from here you will head back to Whitehorse for your final nights in the provincial capital, with a wide range of shops, attractions and restaurants.

You will also have the enjoyable opportunity to try out one of the region's most beloved activities as you take the reign on a husky sled, travelling the way people have done for centuries and appreciating the landscape from an incomparable vantage point. On another day you will be given a tour up to Tombstone Park, a huge stretch of wilderness with some incredible panoramas to enjoy and a chance to glimpse some of the region's beautiful wildlife. To top it all off, you will take part in an exhilarating snowmobiling safari in the mountains that surround Whitehorse, as well as an evening searching for the Northern Lights in the famous Aurora Yurt.

Evenings at the Northern Lights Resort and Spa will be spent keeping watch for the Aurora, with your guide on hand to assist you in photographing the lights should they make an appearance and using their local knowledge to take you to the most promising viewpoint.

We have also included plenty of free time, allowing you to simply relax and absorb your surroundings or add on additional tours and excursions.

All in all, this is a wonderful trip that offers a truly memorable taste of the Yukon.

  • Upon arrival at Whitehorse Airport, you will receive a warm Canadian welcome from your hosts, along with your winter clothing, before being transferred to your accommodation at the Northern Lights Resort and Spa.

    The transfer is only a short one, but on your way here you will have a chance to get your first glimpse of the incredible surroundings, appreciating the towering mountain ranges and untouched wilderness that make up the landscape here. Resident Yukoners refer to their province as being 'larger than life' and you will no doubt appreciate this sentiment from your first day.

    Please note that lunch is not included during your stay at the Northern Lights Resort and Spa, so if you would like to pick up some shopping en-route, your driver will be more than happy to make a stop. Alternatively, lunch can be arranged locally at the hotel for a small fee.

    When you reach your accommodation you will have a chance to settle into your cosy cabins or guest room, which will be your base for the next three nights. Your afternoon has been left free today, giving you a chance to rest, or for those who want to tackle this incredible landscape straight away, you can borrow some snowshoes from the lodge and begin the first exploration of your snowy surroundings.

    Home-cooked and served family-style, dinner here is always a treat and following this you will enjoy your first night searching for the Aurora in the large grounds of the lodge, with your guide on hand to configure your camera for you and to find the perfect spot to set up for the night.

  • Whilst the Yukon is, of course, famed for its gold rush history, breathtaking scenery and Northern Lights, it also offers a varied and exciting range of winter activities and adventures that allow you to enjoy the landscape.

    One such activity, which has existed in Northern Canada for almost 4,000 years, is dog sledding and today you will be given the opportunity to travel the way that people here have done for centuries, experiencing the landscape from this excellent vantage point. Whilst in the past using dog sleds as transport was a necessity in the harsh winter months, today it is more used as an enjoyable activity or competitive sport (the Yukon is home to the famed 1000 mile Yukon Quest, said to be the toughest dog sled race in the world).

    Following a delicious breakfast, you will have the morning free before being transported to the nearby husky farm where you will meet the eager dogs that are to be your enthusiastic companions for the morning. The dogs used here are namely Alaskan and Siberian huskies, breeds that have adapted to survive in such cold conditions. You will ride two people per sled and there will be the chance to swap drivers during the activity. Drivers must be 18 years or older and it is at the guide’s discretion as to whether or not you are able to drive your own team.

    Travelling via husky sled is a wonderful way to experience your surroundings and as the dogs settle into an enthusiastic but gentle pace, you will be able to appreciate the magnificence of the Yukon backcountry and experience the sheer joy of travelling in such a manner.

    The husky sledding experience will start at approximately 12:30pm and you will return to your accommodation around 6pm. For lunch today, you can either pick something up on the way to the activity, or you can grab something to eat at the lodge, prior to your departure (payable locally). After your exciting morning, the remainder of the day has been left free for you to relax.

    Tonight you will enjoy another night of guided Aurora hunting and photography in the grounds of the lodge.

  • Today has been left free for you to do as you wish. Some guests might prefer to be more active and explore their surroundings further, perhaps adding on ice fishing, or an alpine skiing excursion or maybe even a helicopter mountain tour. The details of all of the options can be found in the 'personalise' section of the holiday page. Alternatively, the hire of snowshoes is included in your stay here and the hotel staff will provide you with a map of the surrounding trails, allowing you to navigate and explore the landscape independently.

    The resort has an excellent on-site spa for those looking to relax and it also offers a range of massages that can be paid for locally, as well as a sauna and relaxing outdoor hot tub, the use of which are included for free. You can enjoy lunch in the lodge today, but this must be paid for locally.

    Tonight you will once again keep watch for the Aurora with your guide who will take you to the most likely vantage point and answer any questions you may have about this unique phenomenon whilst you wait. They will also offer their expertise in showing you how best to photograph them should they make an appearance above you.

  • Today you will take a flight from Whitehorse to Dawson City, heading to the quirky and historical town where you will be spending your next two evenings.

    Founded in 1897, Dawson City is the place that found fame as the centre of the great Klondike Gold Rush. At its height in 1898, the city was home to around 40,000 people who came here to seek their fortune from gold. The end of the gold rush saw a steep decline and the population dwindled to below 1000. Indeed, Dawson City lost its status as a city and became a town (yet retained its name). By the 1980s tourism brought a much-needed boost to the town and nowadays it is a wonderful location to feel the thrill of the gold rush era and experience a thrilling part of Canada's history.

    On the tour, you can walk the wide, century-old boardwalks and visualise what life was like for the intrepid prospectors that took the dangerous road here in search of their fortune. You'll also get a chance to visit the Dawson City Ice Bridge, as well as Gold Dredge number 4, which spent hundreds of days each year searching for gold in the Klondike River, changing the structure of the surrounding landscape forever. For lunch, why not try one of the many local cafés and restaurants in the town.

    Tonight you will be staying at The Aurora Inn, a cosy and comfortable hotel in easy walking distance of the town's attractions.

  • Today you will be setting out again to explore some of the frozen and beautiful wilderness of the province, as well as hopefully seeing some of the varied wildlife that calls this place home.

    Your tour will take you along the Dempster Highway, a famed stretch of road that as well as being Canada's only all-weather road, is the only main road in Canada to cross the Arctic Circle. In the winter it uses frozen portions of the Mackenzie River to form an ice road.

    As your guide drives you along this unique piece of Canadian history you will get the opportunity to appreciate the wilderness of rugged peaks, permafrost landforms and abundant wildlife such as elk, moose and bears that live here. From the Tombstone viewpoint overlooking the north Klondike River Valley, the dramatic, jagged peaks of the Tombstone mountain range dominate the landscape and you will be overwhelmed with the vastness of nature here. For lunch today, we would recommend collecting something in Dawson prior to your tour.

    Back at the hotel, you will have the remainder of the day free, allowing you to explore more of Dawson City should you wish.

  • Today you will take the short flight back to Whitehorse where you will be spending the last two nights of your Yukon adventure.

    You will be staying in the Westmark Whitehorse, a conveniently located hotel in the city centre, offering easy access to the provincial capital's many shops, attractions and restaurants. Meals are not included whilst here as there is a wealth of dining options available nearby. The hotel does have a good restaurant, however, should you wish to dine in.

    The city may look slightly nondescript from the outside but hides a welcoming charm and some excellent cafés and cultural sights. Enjoy a relaxing afternoon and evening exploring Whitehorse.

  • Today is your final day in the Yukon and we've decided to include one of the most quintessential winter activities, snowmobiling.

    Snowmobiles are a part of everyday life out here in the frozen wilderness and they're a great way to enjoy the beautiful scenery whilst crossing frozen rivers and snow-covered plains. You will have the morning free to relax, prior to being collected from your hotel at around midday. You will then be transferred to the nearby winter wonderland that surrounds Whitehorse.

    Following a full safety briefing and tuition, you will head out into the wilderness driving two people per snowmobile, travelling across frozen lakes and rivers and through dense spruce forests. Your guide will show you wildlife tracks and discuss the flora and fauna of the area as you stop halfway for snacks and hot drinks.

    You will be transferred back to your hotel at around 5 pm, therefore leaving you the evening free to enjoy your final night in the Yukon.

    Please note that snowmobile drivers must be 18 years or older and hold a valid driver's licence. Although there is no minimum height for a driver or passenger, it is at the guide's discretion as to whether or not you are able to drive the snowmobile. If not, you will ride as a passenger.

    Tonight you will be transferred to the brilliant Aurora Yurt, which sits in a perfect location for spotting the Northern Lights. The yurts are far away from the light pollution of Whitehorse, deep in the Canadian wilderness, therefore increasing your chances of spotting the Aurora. The evening starts at 22:30 and lasts for approximately 4 hours. Snacks and warm drinks are included.

  • Today you will be transferred to the airport for your flights home as your thrilling Yukon adventure draws to a close.

    Many people do like to extend their stay in this area or alternatively move on to explore another area of Canada. For example, most flights to Whitehorse travel via Vancouver and so you may like to take the chance to explore the West Coast.

    If you would like to extend your stay, please see our 'Personalise' section for details.

Additional activities can be booked locally in almost all our destinations. However, as per our booking conditions, we cannot be held responsible for any injury or loss incurred through participation in activities which are booked at your destination outside of our holiday itinerary (see our ‘Terms and Conditions’ for further details).

When arranging any such activity please always ensure that safety is your primary concern. In some of our destinations, you can borrow or hire equipment for use in your free time.

You do so entirely at your own risk. You must ensure that you are properly prepared, have the necessary equipment and knowledge (maps, etc) and ensure that where applicable, you follow marked routes. We recommend discussing your plans with the local teams who will be able to advise on the most suitable options for you.

Always let the reception/guide know where you are planning to go and take a torch and mobile phone (with the hotel/guide’s phone number stored). It is also a good idea to leave your contact number and the time you expect to return to the hotel should the hotel need to contact you.

Our clients’ safety is at the centre of everything we do, and our operations team continually assesses and monitors the destinations we feature. We carry out thorough risk assessments and work closely with all of our suppliers to continually follow best practice. For up to date travel advice the UK government offers its Travel Aware website as well as the advice detailed below.

FLIGHT SCHEDULE CHANGES AND CONNECTING TRANSPORTATION

On your documentation, we will confirm your flight schedule. Sometimes the flight number, routing and timings might change prior to your departure. If the change is classed as a significant change then we will contact you to discuss this. Please see our booking conditions for details.

Flight schedule changes can impact on your pre and post-holiday travel arrangements if these have been booked separately to your holiday. We strongly recommend that you do not book transport (such as trains or transfers), car parking or non-connecting flights to the departure point for your holiday until you have received your final confirmed travel times when your final travel documents are issued. We are not responsible for the effect of any schedule change on your pre or post travel arrangements. We strongly recommend that you do not purchase non-flexible or non-refundable tickets to avoid cancellation and penalty charges.

BOOKING YOUR OWN FLIGHTS - CANCELLATION DISCLAIMER 

If you have chosen to book your own flights, then you will need to wait until we confirm to you that the holiday departure has met the minimum numbers required to run (if applicable to your chosen holiday). Once the holiday is guaranteed to run, you will be informed and you can then make your arrangements.

If transfers are included in your holiday, please ensure that any potential flights will be met by our standard transfers (speak to one of our Travel Experts for advice) otherwise private transfer supplements may be applicable. Once your flights are booked, please send us a copy of your detailed flight itinerary.

Please be aware that most tickets are non-refundable in the case of cancellation. For this reason, we strongly advise you check the rules of the ticket and check the limitations of your cancellation insurance before booking. We cannot be held liable, in the unlikely eventuality that we should be forced to cancel or amend your trip, for losses incurred relating to any flight booking you have made.

THE FOREIGN AND COMMONWEALTH OFFICE ADVICE

We receive all updates from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) with regards to travel advice and we always ensure that we follow this advice in our operations. The FCO issues travel advisories for countries based on a very wide range of factors. They may provide notification about things as simple as a football match and crowds, or they may go so far as to advise against all travel to a region. We ask all our clients to refer to the relevant Travel Advice by Country for the destinations they are visiting in order to make an informed decision on the safety of the destination based on the details provided. It also provides vital information regarding entry requirements, embassy information, local laws and customs as well as specific safety and health. Guests should take responsibility for keeping themselves up to date with this advice. Please also ensure that, if you are transiting through another country, you have read the advice and meet the entry requirements for that destination too.

The FCO travel advice is applicable to British Passport Holders. Most governments will issue their own travel advice for a region and, if you are not a UK resident then you can find some helpful links below:

Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade http://www.smartraveller.gov.au/                                                    New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade http://www.safetravel.govt.nz/                                                  Canadian Consular Affairs Bureau http://voyage.gc.ca/                                                                                                      The U.S. Bureau of Consular Affairs http://travel.state.gov/content/travel/english.html

If the FCO deems that there is an unacceptable level of risk for UK citizens then, together with the government, they may issue an advisory against all travel to a region or country. If such an advisory is published, then we will act accordingly, and this may require the cancellation, curtailment or amendment of a holiday itinerary. These decisions are made on the basis of ensuring our clients’ safety and will affect all clients on the holiday, regardless of their nationality.

If one of our local experts suggests an amendment due to a situation which develops locally then we may also take the decision to amend an itinerary appropriately.

If we have to cancel your holiday prior to departure you will be offered the option of an alternative trip (where any price difference will either be refunded to or covered by you) or a full refund of the monies paid.

If we have to curtail a holiday, then you will be refunded for any costs for the elements we have been unable to deliver, where we have been able to secure a refund from our suppliers. If we must reroute a holiday, then any basis for refund is determined on a case by case basis and dependent on whether the central holiday experience was provided or not.

Please note that the following payment and cancellation terms supersede in part those mentioned in sections 2 and 6 of our general booking terms and conditions.

Traveller Reviews

Seeing the Northern Lights was amazing 29 January 2017 by Patrica and Edward Slaughter

Seeing the Northern Lights was amazing - (we had) a knock on the door at 3 am because the Aurora was moving - but getting up and getting dressed was worth it!! The activity that we enjoyed the most was dog sledding.
