Spend 2 nights of viewing. There was no Aurora to be seen night 1 but it was still fun, spending time around the outdoor fire and alternating with time in the cosy cabins, drinking good coffee and hot chocolate. Second night was similar but at 2.20 am, shortly before we were due to drive back to the hotel a very... More

I had 4 days with Northern Tales, the guides are lovely, knowledgeable and very helpful! They picked me up from the airport and dropped me off the hotel, helped organise my tours, and of course the aurora viewing. Their setup is excellent and I would definetly recommend these guys to everyone!

This was amazing, and the fact that Mother Nature performed was even more brilliant. The guides, were so helpful, friendly, and accommodating. The person that owns the land has set up a great camp site, with warm cabins, and built tripods for use for cameras, and there is great snacks and drinks to keep you going. The tour guides took...

We had three nights of viewing the lights. The first night was cloudy, the second was slow to start and peaked about 2am which was spectacular and the third night started about ten minutes after we got there, which was also amazing. We were very lucky and our guide Gody was very helpful with setting up our cameras and also... More

I was fortunate to see one of the best sightings of the lights in 6 years on 3 September 2016 I found it very moving. The camp set up was excellent, the cabins were warm and inviting and hot cuppas supplied. The staff were excellent and very informative. This was a highlight of my Canadian and Alaskan 3 week tour.... More

Our trip to Whitehorse with Northern Tales was a wonderful experience. The tour guides were welcoming and fun, and very generous with their substantial knowledge and experience. Our time was relaxed but still covered many activities and local history. The northern lights viewing was great fun with a terrific setup with the campfire and cabins. Little touches like the tripods... More

We were there for two nights -- one rainy night and another with limited sighting. Since what you would see in the sky is up to the nature, I cannot really comment on it. However, the staff was courteous and thorough from the time they greeted us at the airport to the pre-tour orientation, including the what-to-do in Whitehorse, and... More
