See the dancing Northern Lights in the Yukon and immerse yourself in winter adventures in the Canadian Rockies!

This the third run for this trip. In February 2017, the group had an amazing experience on 2 spectacular nights seeing the Northern Lights actually dancing in the open night sky! The lights filled the whole sky, it was a truly memorable experience. The second run for this trip that took place in December 2017 was just as amazing with equally colourful and dancing lights filling the whole night sky. You can check out the pictures on my FB page "Inner Passage Mountain Travels"

As you will have to fly into Calgary in Canada to take a domestic flight to the Yukon for the Northern Lights, and Calgary being the gateway to the beautiful Canadian Rockies, it is your best chance to take in the sights of the beautiful mountain landscapes in the Rockies before heading to the Yukon. After all, you flew all the way to Calgary and it will be a pity if you don't see for yourself this stunning beauty of mother nature. This trip will be like going on 2 tours on one trip - the Canadian Rockies, and the Northern Lights.

On this trip, you will get a chance to experience the splendor of a snowy winter wonderland in the Canadian Rockies and catch the beautiful winter landscape made so much more magnificent with the mountains in the background. You will get to see the world-renowned Lake Louise and visit Banff, the famous town of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks, which is on the UNESCO world heritage list. In Banff, you will ride the gondola up Sulphur Mountain for views that will take your breath away! Then discover the secret in the Cave and Basin tour that led to the discovery of this amazing mountain national park. Your winter adventures will also bring you the wonders of ice-walking in a canyon, and snowshoeing on a snowy landscape in Sunshine Meadows.

The second part of this trip will see you board a flight to Yukon into the town of Whitehorse where you will have the opportunity of your lifetime to catch the spectacular Northern Lights – the Aurora Borealis for four nights! There will be two days where you will get the chance to stay in a lodge, faraway from the lights of the town, and enjoy the beauty of the quiet seclusion of in this vast Yukon landscape. (You can also opt out of this lodge stay if you are on a budget, and the cost of the tour will be reduced by about $200). The other 2 nights where you are not in the lodge, you will be transported from your hotel to a heated cabin or wall tent, out in the open darkness, to catch the Aurora Borealis. During your days in Whitehorse, optional tours like dog-sledding, snowmobiling, ice-fishing and snow biking can also be included to increase your fun-filed adventure factor.
