Joined the Aurora light tours in Dec 2015 - it was a great experience!! Staffs are super helpful and friendly, they know how to prep you well, and even offer to help with your camera setting (well of course depending on your camera model) for best photo taking of the lights!! Instructions were clear and arrangements are thoughtful and flexi,... More

Right from the start Anita & Erika (Northern Tales) were super helpful in all aspects. (Aussies, you don't have to go through a sister company - you can pay Northern Tales direct, just email the girls). My hire clothing was delivered well before our viewing and was comfy, warm and perfect fit - if it doesn't just let them know.... More

I had no idea of what to expect (and I didn't want to know anything in advance) so all that happened was a wonderful surprise! The guides are absolutely lovely, well trained, and they made us feel safe and at ease, in spite of the cold weather...brrrrr... The Northern Lights are beautiful and I had the privilege to watch them... More

I was in Whitehorse during Christmas 2015. I used Northern Tales guided tour for Aurora viewing and snowshoeing. Since the very beginning at booking through email the staffs (Anila / Erika) were very friendly and the response came promptly. During the Aurora viewing the staffs provided help with camera setting. I borrowed a solid tripod from them for free. When... More

We came to Whitehorse as a part of our honeymoon in early January 2016. We saw the lights 3 out of the 4 nights. The guides were excellent, very friendly and informative. We loved that the company had three different huts so each night was a little different. Northern Tales also provided camera tripods and assisted us to set the... More

Fantastic trip we were lucky enough to see the lights the night Wolf claimed to be best of the winter ! We practically didn't sleep with our full schedule. All parts of the tour were well executed, punctual pick up times and factual, friendly guides. I honestly have nothing negative to say, you guys and girls have done exactly what... More

Northern Tales made it possible for my aunt and I to have the most amazing, memorable stay we've had in the Yukon. From our delayed arrival to the time we were about to leave, Northern Tales have shown sincere warmth, graciousness and flexibility. The team - from sales and the guides - are all incredible, supportive, kind, patient, genuinely happy.... More

The tour guides are really friendly and helpful helping me with figure out settings so I'll be able to capture the lights on my phone. As a first timer with my mom, we were lucky enough to see the lights on the first night. You have many options to keep yourself warm with snacks and drinks in the cabin. Great... More

I cannot say enough good things about this company. All the tour guides we met were very friendly and were very willing to help us with all our requests (and we had many requests when it came to getting the correct clothing size)! A bus took us to and from the viewing site. The viewing site is a large field... More
