My son and I recently travelled up to the Yukon with Northern Tales for a three day Aurora trip. From greeting us at the airport to handling all our supplemental excursions Northern Tales proved to be a class outfit. We had three nights of viewing (which I recommend since mother nature doesn't always cooperate when it comes to cloud cover).... More

Only had a few days in Whitehorse and booked this trip to hopefully catch the gorgeous northern lights. Luckily we spotted some on our only day :) . Most people there had booked multiple days. The guides were wonderful and were full of information. They also really made sure you felt comfortable during the chilly night. Would not hesitate to... More

My husband and I took the Northern Tales 2 night Northern Lights package. Everything was handled very efficiently. Airport pick-up, hotel and evenings at the Lights were all great. I would recommend that unless you have ski or snow-mobiling clothes, do the winter clothes rental. No one wants to be cold for 4 hours in the middle of the night.... More

We had a great experience with Northern Tales...very professional, knowledgeable and nice staff who were always willing to explain things, lend you a hand with your camera settings and make our viewing experience fun and enjoyable. Their cabin and viewing area is really well located, in front of a large open field, about 20 kms outside of Whitehorse...this really helps... More

I travelled in February 2014 by myself to Whitehorse, and had an amazing time. The staff there are fantastic. They are great with communication, and really look out for you. They arrange for you to be picked up and dropped off from the airport, and they are full of suggestions. One suggestion they gave me was to spend a night... More

Northern Tales was extremely proficient in organizing our itinerary. They responded to all inquiries quickly. When we arrived in Whitehorse & were picked up at the airport, we immediately felt at ease and were provided with a detailed itinerary. The guides were all very pleasant, professional and knowledgeable. I'd highly recommend Northern Tales to anyone visiting the Yukon to see... More

Everyone at the Northern Tales team was extremely helpful and efficient. The booking process was simple and we were accommodated with transfers to and from the airport (even after a mishap with flight times). The tour guides were very knowledgeable of the local area and it was interesting to hear a little about the history of Whitehorse. The viewing post... More

I travelled from Australia to Vancouver, then onto Whitehorse on 8th October especially to see the Aurora Borealis. I was not disappointed as the night sky was ablaze with its colour and action for nearly four hours. The sky was lit with the amazing Aurora Borealis, full moon and the sparkling stars. The lights seem to to dance, swaying gently,... More

We arrived Sept 23 when the Aurora Borealis was very active. (It was a level 7 that day). The next 2 nights were a level 4 but we still managed to get some very nice pictures. This was an awe-inspiring, mouth dropping experience. It was a wonderful experience - one we will definitely always treasure in our hearts. Northern Tales... More

My husband and I travelled from Australia to visit Whitehorse and hunt the Northern Lights at the end of August. Our guides, Silke and Bernie and Rika were very attentive and Silke made every effort to help us enjoy ourselves out in the paddock waiting for the aurora to show up. We appreciated her good humour and patience despite uncooperative... More
