For anyone wishing to experience the Northern Lights, or even simply unwind in a peaceful and beautiful part of the world, there couldn't possibly be any better way than to stay at Wolfgang & Renate's wonderful property just outside of Whitehorse.
The cabins are perfectly situated with a view to the north over the large open field, allowing you to head in and out at your leisure to view the lights at any time of the night (and they can often appear much later than the 10pm-2am window the bus tours take you out for !) then retreat back into the comfort of the very warm and well appointed cabins.
The hospitality is wonderful your made very welcome the moment you arrive and Wolfgang does his best to provide anything you might need. The breakfasts and meals were also lovely and a nice time to spend chatting to your cabin neighbors about the lights or other activities you might have done.
Whilst we were there the aurora activity was low (Kp = 1 out of 10) but even at this level we were still treated to a lively display just above the mountains, and the long exposure photos taken were truly spectacular. Heading back into Whitehorse later in the week for a couple of nights stay in town the lights were getting stronger (Kp = 2/3) and though they were just visible from downtown, oh how I wished I had stayed those extra couples of nights out at the cabin for a much better view !
Though the Enzian cabin could have had a little more room for our heavy luggage, we did love that the cabin had an oven and stove to allow us to cook when we stayed indoors. In most all other respects the cabins were outstanding and very comfortable regardless of the temperature outside - and let me say for anyone worried about the cold, -20C on a still clear day or night felt warmer than -7C with windchill when we were walking around back in town.
We've come away with truly wonderful memories of our stay and am already thinking about the next trip to go back and spend even more time at the resort !
