The food was nice but for what you got it is very over priced, i went with a group of 11 people and ended up close to $100 per person including a couple of bottles of wine. Service was ok one waitress was bordering on plain rude, we didn't stay here for the northern lights as if you are only... More

We've been there before and had a great meal. Not this time. The appetizers were really good (smoked fish, smoked dry ribs, chowder and the beet salad). But the two meat dishes were hugely over-peppered (and not advertised as pepper sauces). The potatoes were overcooked and also over-peppered. One of the meat dishes was overcooked. The vegetables were good. Char... More

Tried bbq'd bison here for the first time. The meal was excellent, the service was great. Tepees by the lake were very cool.

Great location and views but outside the city limits. The restaurant is open to everyone, would advise booking in advance. We are vegetarians and the cook prepared a special delicious meal for us.

We went for a birthday dinner party, we made a reservation but missed the turn off. We phoned to let them know what had happened and were told we had a very limited time to eat. We ended up there about 15 to 20 mins late and were informed that we could have appetizer and entrees but no dessert.. we... More

As everyone knows you roll the dice coming here hoping to see the northern lights. If it's a clear night and the aurora come out to play, then using this company and coming to this location can't be beat. Hot beverages, chairs and bathroom facilities are provided. However to avoid disappointment, if you're in Yellowknife for more than a day,... More

I am surprised with some of the bad reviews of the Aurora Village, as we had nothing but perfect service from the place. Firstly, If you want to see the Aurora, this is possibly the best spot in Yellowknife to go. I spent a few extra nights to travel around Yellowknife on my own to take photos and the aurora... More

I was firstly attracted by the website and tripadvisor's rating. However, I found my experience there was not good. Nearly 30 people crowded in on teepee. I think there may be minimum 100 or more people on that night (17th March 2015). There was no snack or food at all (don't say world class comfort). Toilet is located outside without... More

I've just done a 4-night hotel and aurora tour package and the through-train service from airport pick-up to pick-up for departure flight saved me lots of time and proved effective. I got a discount for the reason that I had all the winter clothing for the aurora tour. I did not expect that but that was the outcome. I was... More
