I joined their packages for the 1st night to see aurora & the 3rd day for dog sledding & rented winter clothes for 3 days. Honestly speaking, their camp site for seeing aurora is amazing as the people can enter to teepee to keep warm & also take pic for fun when no aurora comes out. The teepees will have... More

Horrible. Dinner Reservations for 7:30 PM. 8:10 before drinks came. Food ordered at 8:20. 8:40 were told everyone had to be out by 10:00 and they might not be able to make our food in time. 9:15 food came out. Food was good but the Customer Service was horrible. We ended up going to the bar to get a pitcher... More

I had a similar experience to some of the other reviewers. They did not respond to my initial inquiries (both email and voicemail). I did let them know in the messages that I wanted to book, and wanted to know the availability at different times. I do agree with others that they really do cater towards the Japanese speaking clientele,... More

Chef Pierre is renouned for his fine French dishes. Aurora Village has a well regarded outdoor northern experience for tourists and locals alike.

The Aurora Village was such a fantastic experience with the warmth of the operators, incredible food .. do not miss the Reindeer !!! Also, the tents and then of course the Aurora was a night I will never forget. This is worth a long weekend trip from Edmonton or Calgary to experience this incredible facility.

Aurora Village is a bit pricey, but so worth it. Dinner at the Lodge is an amazing experience. The service is at times lacking, but the food is AMAZING! You will not find cuisine like this anywhere else in the North. Worth every cent. The Aurora Viewing facilities are second to none and the tour guides are friendly and knowledgeable.

We joined the Aurora Village for 2 consecutive nights in sept 2014, everything is well organized and the well equipped. The hot chocolate, soup... More

Extremely well run catering for all those seeking to see the Aurora. We were two of a very few non-Asian visitors on the 3 nights and were put together with other English speaking guests.. Busloads of visitors each night but great fun! Now here's a tip...STUNNING food and wine at The Lodge Restaurant on site. I'm sure you can go... More

We visited Yellowknife with an aim to view aurora and were lucky enough to view active "northern lights" in four consecutive nights by late March 2012 (just recall to write and upload photos for others viewing right now). Aurora was so active that you could not only viewed the phenomenon in the aurora village at the outskirt but even in... More

It was my first experience to see the northern lights. The view is beyond description. We watched beautiful Aurora for 5 nights. Also we had nice tour guides. They explained everything in detail. We had a delicious soup every night with a biscuit. It was a miracle place to visit. You should go there.
