Arrive At Yellowknife Airport / Yellowknife

(Passengers arriving on other airlines may use the free shuttle between Yellowknife Airport and downtown hotels to arrive independently at the hotel.) After getting settled and fitting your warm winter weather robe, your guide will take you to Aurora Village for your first evening of Aurora viewing! Warm-up in a picturesque teepee glowing in the night, wood fire stove burning, heated seats and choose from a delicious selection of hot beverages. Situated around the village on high ground and away from the lights of the city and any light pollution, the view of the Northern Lights is sensational. After your first Aurora experience, you are transferred back to your Yellowknife hotel. Your dinner will be included (or on day 3; select day upon arrival). Overnight in Yellowknife. Please note: Activities may be modified to snowmobiling or ice fishing with either dogsledding or snowshoeing. Please advise at time of booking.

After lunch, strap on your snowshoes for a guided walk along the local trails where your guide reveals how the indigenous people of the area used the flora and fauna to survive this harsh climate.
