“Well Organized”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

An excellent experience for Japanese tourists.Well organized and friendly. English is a second language for the guides but they do attempt to include non Japanese in the program.

“Come see the Northern lights”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2012

Aurora Village is set up mostly for tourist for viewing of the Northern lights. There is a main lodge and several authentic teepees. They also offer bodsledding and other outdoor activities that make the best of their wilderness setting.

“great experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2012

took this tour even after taking another tour with North star adventures (see my review). This one is much costlier (first 4 hours is charges at a flat rate and then increased in slabs which is optional) but it provides lot of other luxuries like a heated teepee where a guide serves you hot chocolate, coffee plus a small meal in te cafeteria, washroom facilities.. above all it recreates the experience of a night-out at the North Pole in a teepee under the magnificient Aurora, which is unique.
a must if you are going to Yellowknife..

“Into the bush - and a charming if touristy experience”

Dog sledding, tubing, the aurora, Dene storytelling, and copious amounts of food - a great experience.
