The staff,Anila and a couple of others were very kind ,patient and prompt in answering all my queries. Finally,when we arrived at Whitehorse,Yukon on the 2nd April,we were received by a very kind...

After a great deal of research to view the Northern Light from Alaska to Europe, we decided to book our Aurora Borealis trip March 21 - 24, 2014 through Northern Tales. Northern Tales was a pleasure to do business with. They were responsive to questions prior to our trip and continued to be responsive during our stay. There tour schedules... More

I had a great time in whitehorse, we were lucky to see a bright aurora, the people running the tour also takes photos for you if your camera is insufficent so overall it was a great experience for me. -zhiqingfeng

We had a great trip in Whitehorse (4 nights). Would strongly suggest you rent the winter clothing option. Note that they don't have half sizes in the insulated boots so think carefully about what shoe size you give. Do as many of the extra trips as you can. We did the half day dog sledding and the overnight in a... More

I went to the Yukon to celebrate my 30th birthday under the Northern Lights. Although we didn't see too many lights, we had the most amazing experience with Northern Tales! The hotel (Gold Rush Inn) has been recently renovated and is located right off Main Street so you can really get a feel for Whitehorse. The Viewing location is amazingly... More

Northern Tales is a very organized and professional group of people. We did the 5 day Yukon adventure and it was fabulous. 4 late nights at their exclusive sites to view the Northern Lights, a full day of dog sledding, a full day of snowmobiling, and a day with city tour and hot springs/animal preserve visit. All the guides are... More

Just got back to the UK after a wonderful trip. Northern Tales have been great throughout, right from initial enquiry to making our time in Whitehorse special. The Best Western Hotel was good but we particularly enjoyed our time out at the Spa resort. The appearance of the Aurora three nights running was an extra special treat and far beyond... More

Ever since I was a child, I've always wanted to see Aurora in person. I finally found the time and money to do so. After finding the excellent reviews on their TripAdvisor page, I decided to book with Northern Tales from 2/21 - 2/25. We were treated to some amazing displays of the Northern Lights every night we were there.... More

I just got back from a trip to Whitehorse (Feb 27 - March 2). Northern Tales handled all the activities and bookings for us. Their staff was very knowledgeable, organized and friendly. They were on time for pick ups, knew what camera settings you should use and had a fun camp fire and cabin experience all set up. The city... More
