A cool place to watch the aurora lights under comfortable chair, with hot chocolate and fire place in the tent to keep us warm just in case we didn't dress properly.. A little expensive to my standard, but it is worth a try...

The place is well built, with lots of activities. However, the group are so big and they provide so few information about aurora and Yellowknife, yet buns of information about the souvenir shop, extension charge of viewing aurora, etc. To me, it is too commercial. And they urged us to leave when time's up evening when the aurora just appeared.... More

Had lovely dinner at the lodge, food was wonderful and the chef and servers were fun to chat with. The restaurant serves only Canadian wine, which is fine as there are some lovely Canadian wines, but they didn't have any of those. Go for food... not pairings. If Aurora is out, wonderful photo opportunity (bring good camera, that is set... More

Really mixed feelings about Aurora Village. On the positive side, the ambiance created by the lit tipis is amazing and makes for beautiful pictures. Our 4 hour excursion was scheduled to end at 1am. As luck would have it, after 3 hours and 50 the Aurora made their debut. I had just handed in my rental tripod and as I... More

Aurora Village appears to concentrate on group tourists rather than individual tourists.

Booking through aurora village to arrange for aurora viewing is rather simple and effective. The fact that they offer a full service including winter-clothing rental, tripod rental in the gift shop on the spot of aurora village makes our trip quite simple and cozy.

A must go place for aurora night. I have wonderful experience there with my honey. Also, you can enjoy delicious dinner before the aurora night. I also have dog ride here which is fantastic. But i do not recommend the snowmobile here as there is just a one mobile serving two of us and I can only drive around the... More
