I rarely post reviews - but why falter if it was an amazing trip and excellent experience? And by that I do not mean the aurora viewing in and of itself, which is a sight to see IF the lights come out (naturally, there is only limited telling but I was lucky enough to see them 2.5 out of 4...

The Northern Tales company provided excellent service for the Northern Lights excursion nightly outings as well as arranging other day-time activities. We were promptly picked up from our hotel, well-cared for at the site and entertained if the Lights were not out. The guides, Tom, Bernie and Silke, provided excellent care and attention and went round to make sure everyone... More

I had the Aurora Borealis tour on Feb 21 & 22, 2015. There was not too much on Feb 21 since it was cloudy. But on Feb 22, the light was very active, it was amazing and wonderful. I strongly recommend the tour provided by Northern Tales Travel Services. The staff is friendly , and the waiting cabin is warn... More

Northern Tales was professional, thorough, accommodating and courteous. They were in constant contact with us before our trip, and they made us feel like royalty. Their guides are excellent, knowledgeable and engaging. The dog sledding was amazing (you MUST go dog sledding on your vacation with them!!!) and so was the wildlife park. We went for five days and had... More

Northern Tales were absolutely fabulous - they picked us up, gave us all of the information we needed, and cared for us completely. It was a wonderful experience.

All of my communications with Northern Tales were prompt, courteous, and clear. It made me feel I could trust the company. They had steel tripods at the warming huts because those with plastic parts break in extreme temperatures. Our temperatures were not that cold, but the tripods came in handy. We rented clothing, and it was clean and everything fit.... More

My wife and I participated in the 3-night aurora package for Japanese speakers. From the time we were met at the airport in Whitehorse to the time they sent us off there, everything ran like clockwork, and we knew exactly what to expect. Although it was a balmy -2 at night, the arctic clothing package we rented was still useful.... More

My wife and I got married last November and picked this as our winter getaway. Our last vacation was to UK and Ireland, so it was tough to beat, but Whitehorse did it. Northern Tales made this trip outstanding. We booked the Remote Cabin Tour. It is a five day tour which includes three days at what was labeled on... More

Northern Tales were fantastic to deal with from the start. They were so helpful when we contacted them to organise our trip and the guides were really helpful and personable during our tour. You are picked up from your hotel and provided with drinks and snacks, with a fire and cabin to warm up. They even have tripods for you... More

I couldn't recommend Northern Tales enough as a company to do a Northern Lights tour with. From the moment we inquired they were exceptionally helpful, splitting our payment up per person and accepting different methods and also answering any questions we had in the run up to the night. For the tour your are picked up on a bus and... More
