  • Whitehorse: Nighttime Northern Lights Viewing

    1. Whitehorse: Nighttime Northern Lights Viewing

    Canada’s High North is famous for its nature, its wildlife, endless lands, and above all, the mystical Northern lights. Aurora Borealis provides an astonishing spectacle in these areas, especially during winter. This “Aurora Hunting” tour will take you to numerous vantage points, aiming for a perfect view of the polar lights. Hot tea pops and snacks will be provided for you during this 4-hour tour. If desired, you will receive an introduction to Aurora photography and its beautiful subtleties so that you can take some unforgettable memories of your encounter with the northern lights (tripod required). You'll be picked up from the meeting point at 10:30 PM, leaving the city’s light-polluted sky behind and heading towards the northern lights. To ensure the best chances of gazing at Aurora Borealis, you won't travel to one pre-determined location, but instead will visit several different v...

    Our guide, Toby, was very informative and engaging. Due to weather, he moved our appointment to give us a chance at seeing the lights. Even though we did not see them with our eyes (only captured on camera), I highly recommend this trip. We walked on a frozen lake, watched a meteor shower, toasted marshmallows in -31C, and learned a lot about the Yukon Territory. The tour van/bus was warm and comfortable, and light snacks were provided.

  • Whitehorse: Half-Day Snowshoeing Tour

    2. Whitehorse: Half-Day Snowshoeing Tour

    Snowshoeing is one of the best ways to enjoy the tranquility of the Yukon wilderness and to photograph the stunning Yukon landscape. On this half-day snowshoeing tour, you’ll get to strap on a pair of lightweight modern snowshoes and experience the rugged backcountry just like the gold miners, trappers and fur traders of days gone by. Visit scenic locations in the Whitehorse area backcountry and get the chance to spot wildlife such as spruce grouse, foxes, coyotes and snowshoe hares. Enjoy warm beverage and a snack to round out the day.

    It was a nice activity, the guide was very informative, caring and did a fine job. Thanks Rafael.

It was a unique experience. Tibias made every effort so that we could see the auroras, it is best that you do not stay in one place, you are hunting and looking for the best place to see and photograph them. If you don't know anything about the auroras Tobias explains everything and makes you feel confident. Excellent guide and a unique experience. I highly recommend it.

This tour was impressive, we were a small group so we received excellent attention and Toby the guide did everything possible to see the auroras in the best place and in excellent condition, I recommend it
