        The Quintessential Yukon Experience
        We were in town for a few days taking in the Yukon Rendezvous Festival. While checking out the pubs and dodging the Keystone Kops is always fun, no visit to Whitehorse is complete without an aurora viewing tour. Not wanting to miss out during our limited time, we booked two nights with Arctic Range Adventures. At $149 per person, the rate is more than reasonable and the team @ Arctic Range makes sure guests get their money’s worth! The overall experience is quite fun: You are picked up at the Sternwheeler Hotel at approximately 11:20PM (a piece of cake for us since we were staying there) and driven 45 minutes outside Whitehorse, via a comfortable shuttle bus, to the Aurora Centre (used exclusively by Arctic Range Adventures). The Centre is nicely laid out: There are two heated outhouses (so you don’t have to freeze!); a comfortable yurt with seating, stove, light snacks and drinks; two teepees where you can sit, dialogue with the group and roast marshmallows; and an expansive aurora viewing area complete with tripods bolted into place for your use and enjoyment. You spend about 3 hours at the site before being bussed back to your accommodation, arriving back to Whitehorse at around 4AM. On both nights our primary guide was Pascal. He was informative and gave everybody the “lay of the land” each time. On night one, we spent most of our time in the teepee because it was mostly cloudy skies. I thought we were going to strike out but, just as everyone was getting ready to board the shuttle back to Whitehorse, the aurora made a brief – and very faint – appearance! While the green hues were subtle, we were thankful to see them! On night two, we had far better luck. Upon arrival to the Aurora Centre just after 12AM, the aurora made an appearance and stuck around for nearly an hour! It was bright and a majestic sight as it wove through the night sky! One could almost hear the ghost of Robert Service reciting his poem, “Ballad of the Northern Lights:” They rolled around with a soundless sound Like softly bruised silk; They poured into the bowl of the sky With the gentle flow of milk. Indeed, if you want a quality aurora tour, I can’t recommend Arctic Range Adventures enough. The team is professional; the Aurora Centre is comfortable; the site for viewing the Northern Lights is large enough so as to avoid the feeling of being crowded; and, if you don’t have sufficient winter gear, they have some for rent! In short, Arctic Range offers the complete package at a reasonable cost! Highly recommended!

        A bit of everything
        Loved it. You get all activities in one package. Hot spa is a must. 4 stars: some guides were Japanese, with questionable English, although they were trying. City sightseeing - not needed, as you can do it yourself. Lots of spare time, with nothing to do. You can safely return on the fourth day.

        Amazing experience well coordinated and great service to enjoy the aurora’s dazzling show
        We book the tour for 2 different days, expanding our chances to view the auroras In both occasions the service was really good, all the staff well prepared to assure we had a comfortable stay and dedicate the time to wonder at the sky, whenever the auroras could happen. They are very professional and offer a quality service, with coffee and cookies, and marshmallows to burn at the fire in the tipi tent. They also offer the rental of clothes and boots if required, at an extra charge. The service was efficient and everything at time as scheduled. We had a magnificent aurora show, awesome, all the late stay and the cold outside was definitely worth it. I recommend the company and will consider another of the tours they offer for another visit ocassion.

        Excellent tour, highly recommend. Yuri - one of the tour guides was exceptional.
        I booked two tours in Whitehorse to view the Aurora borealis through Arctic Range Adventures and both of them were amazing. The tour guides were very nice , kind and made sure we had the best time. There were snacks and hot beverages available and the cabins were well heated. There was also a fire pit in the Tipis where we could roast marshmallows while waiting for the lights to show up. Yuri, one of the tour guides was especially very nice and warm.. She was very knowledgeable and gave very good information on the Northern lights and other activities to do in the area.. Big shout up to Yuri for being so exceptional..Your service was very much appreciated..Keep up the good work..

        Top notch tour!
        Arctic Range Adventure put on the most amazing trip for us! We saw the northern lights and went dog sledding, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling. We were novices but it didn't matter. There was plenty of instruction and help along the way. The guides were all so wonderful and everything ran so smoothly, from being picked up at the airport, to all the events. We can't wait to go back. We loved every minute, including the wildlife park and hot springs too. Although temps dropped to well below freezing, we were fine in our good quality arctic range gear. We also really appreciate the extra effort from the Arctic staff to make bookings for events at the last minute. We truly appreciate the top notch company and tour!

        You better look for other tour operator…
        Arctic Range had terrible service, we have rented to them winter clothes, for more than $250cad per person, the snow boots didn’t fit for my wife, the tour guide that gave us the clothing took us to the store they rented the clothes (40% cheaper) but the store was closed for 2 of the 3 rented days, he told us we couldn't do anything… his name was Leo, the third day when we went to the store continued closed, when we had a big complain at the office, Jessica told you should let me know earlier, we did it, through the tour guide…. Between they were finger pointing one to each other…. Finally they were able to open the store for us and we changed the boots. I normally write good reviews when I received a great service, this is the first time I write a bad review, just because the bad customer service and attention I received. There are some other options to hire a tour, if I were you, I would consider those other options if you want to have a good service.

        A lot for a Little
        We were picked up at 11pm and then spent the next hour picking up more passengers at,one hotel we waited over 30 mins before we drove the 45 mins to the site. When we got there they said to wait on the bus while they got things ready,started the fire (this should have been done before we got there) We were shown around the cabin, teepee and yurt. They had hot drinks and store bought cookies available. The teepee had a fire going in it which was nice. We talked to a girl from Japan and this was her third night there and did not see the Aurora. We did not see it either and finally got back to our hotel at 4am. $300 for 2 was a lot to charge for what we got.

        Amazing experience. Very friendly people. The cabins in the wilderness were so cozy and well maintained. Bonfire in the middle of wilderness was a cherry on top.

        They left me in the lobby
        Around mid-day on February 20th 2023 I went in to the Arctic Range business office in downtown Whitehorse and asked about an Aurora trip for that night (The forecast for Aurora was good--a KP5). I told the young lady my interest in the tour was photography. It turned out there was space available so I signed up. She explained that the tour was 4 hours long; approximately a half hour ride out of town, 3 hours on the site and a half ride back to town. I asked if the Aurora was especially active did they stay longer. A firm no. I asked if I could take my own vehicle and if the Aurora was active stay longer. Again a firm no. She asked me where I was staying and I told her--Skky Hotel near the airport. She told me twice that they would be there to pick me up at 10 minutes after 11. And she also told me to be in the lobby ready to go so there would be no delay in picking me up. I said I would be there and be ready and also repeated back to her the scheduled time; 10 after 11. Thinking they might be a little early I positioned myself in the hotel lobby at 10 minutes before 11. So 20 minutes ahead of the pickup time I was there with camera pack, tripod, dressed in cold weather clothing and ready to go. At 10 minutes after 11 no one had showed. At 1130 I called the Arctic Range phone number and got a recording. I left a message stating who I was, where I was and wondered where was my pickup. At 10 minutes until 12 I gave up waiting and went back to my room extremely irritated. Next day I went back down to the office. The same person from the day before told me that the driver went to the hotel but no one was waiting. That statement is absolutely untrue. The whole episode left a very bad feeling with me and also left me with the impression that Arctic Range does not have much of a commitment to their photographer clients. To make matters worse on Tuesday afternoon I was told the the Aurora was quite active the night before with colors and curtains in the early hours of Tuesday morning--the time when I would have been out with them had they done their job. The only thing good about this incident is that there was no issue on getting my money refunded.

        Extremely well organized touring group with guides who have a passion for what they do. Had an amazing time in the Yukon doing a plane tour, dog sledding, snowmobiling and even got to see the Northern lights.

        Why did we wait so long to discover the Yukon?
        My husband and I just returned from our Yukon adventure and we loved it! The daytime excursions were fun, informative and, in some cases, quite physically exhilarating. The staff/guides were so good teaching us and really caring for our well-being. Case in point, my husband was very much in pain through his back and the guides determined that when it came to the dog-sledding, he, and therefore we, would be better off going for the ride rather than driving the sleds ourselves. Sincerest thanks to all of our guides, including the gentleman who made several trips to make sure all of our rented gear fit properly. And then there was the Aurora Borealis! We know that no one controls them, but how very lucky we were to see the spectacular display. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for everything!

        friendly staff but didnt get to see the lights
        sadly we did not see the lights as when we went it was cloudy the whole time. The staff was very friendly and they put on a presentation about aurora lights as well as a campfire to roast marshmallows. I was disappointed that we couldn't see it and we paid $130 each. I think it would have been nice if we could reschedule it but this company does not offer that.

        A+
        A+ for Arctic Range Adventures! From punctual pick up to knowledgeable tour guides - Barbara, Shungo and Naomi, the experience over two-night tours was magical. The first night the aurora was faint, but the warm treats were appreciated as was roasting marshmallows in awesome tipis. The second night the Northern Lights did not disappoint and exceeded my expectations. Highly recommend this professional group of individuals for an unforgettable experience.

      Very poor, we had a 3 night tour, they cancelled a trip to the hot springs and never notified us, so we waited and wasted the day, they took us to see the northern lights when it was snowing with no visibility to. They didn’t cancel that . This is a company that has a great deal of international non English speaking clients. For example we were on a bus w all Japanese speaking tourists, the guide Julie spoke to them and not the few of us English speakers. There are other good companies in the area, chose them.

      We were lucky enough to see the northern light for all 3 nights. Though it was quite cloudy, we managed to see the Milky Way as well. The guides were very nice, helpful and knowledgeable. Had a very detailed presentation about the aurora. I was told the best season to see the aurora is Sep/Feb.

      It was a wonderful experience - tours are run very well, staff are all friendly, and communication beforehand was always quick. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to see the Northern Lights.

      My only criticism is the hotel they book you into. The Westmark Hotel was the worst hotel I stayed in in Canada and would not recommend ANYONE stay there - I understand that Arctic Range must have a deal with the hotel, but honestly, it's not worth it. We had no hot water on 3 occasions (we complained but were dismissed by front desk), housekeeping rarely came, and bathroom was hardly clean.

      Thank you very much for your kind review about our tours and our team. We are happy to hear you are recommending our Northern Lights viewing tour. We do apologize for any inconvenience you experienced during your hotel stay. It appears the hotel had a temporary issue with one of their boiler during your stay and that caused the shortage of hot water. Of course we will address your concerns with the hotel management and hope to resolve the mentioned issues for the future.

      My wife and I went on this tour with my sister and grand daughter. This company provides transportation to/from airport at arrivals and departures. This tour provides 3 opportunities to see the Northern lights and we seen the northern lights on our first outing to the Aurora center. The tour package kept us busy our entire time with spare time to rest prior to going out to the Aurora center. All 3 tour guides we had were very friendly, informative and helpful (Kei, Chica & Moto), We went on the City tour, Yukon Brewery, Whitehorse Wildlife Preserve & Hot Springs, Each tour provides plenty of photo opportunities. Arctic Range Adventure also have winter gear you can rent which was perfect for this type of weather. The Aurora center has several buildings called Yurt's and 2 Tipi's to keep warm when needed. The yurt's have hot water for tea and coffee and also contain clean rest rooms. I highly recommend this Tour company to others wishing to visit Whitehorse Yukon to see the Northern Lights.

      Arctic Range Adventure is the way to go if considering a trip to see the northern lights. They are so well organized, tour package includes hotel and various tours during the day. Their tour guides are so knowledgeable and friendly and overall helpful. Also Arctic Range rents outer wear so that big purchases aren’t necessary for boots, parka, and pants. We also went during the Sourdough Rendezvous festival which added extra fun for us. Oh and we did see the northern lights, I am beyond happy, would do it again. There is so much more I could say but out of room.

      Every single one of the Arctic Range staff was amazing. Super friendly, helpful, and top notch service. Literally started from when they picked us up from the airport through every single activity. Their Aurora Center is a great location to wait and watch the lights. Drinks and snacks in the cabin, roast marshmallows in the teepees, and hang out in the Yurt. While there’s no guarantee of seeing the Aurora, they always make the customer the priority. Highly recommended!
