Yukon Fall Colour Tour
Aurora Borealis and Fall Colors what more can you ask for
While the Northern Lights are active all year round we need darkness to be able to spot them. Our Aurora Borealis packages are perfectly timed. You can get a chance to see the northern lights but also can still enjoy some fun day time activities without getting too cold.
Why to choose us for your Aurora Borealis Package ?
This is the perfect little fall get away. Enjoy 3 nights in our cozy wilderness lodge, away from the light pollution of the city and get a chance to see the northern lights from your bed room window.
During the day time we will take you for a fun guided half day paddle on the Takhini River. Followed by a guided visit to the Yukon Wildlife preserve. The following morning you will join a train run with our sweet and cuddly dogs.
This Aurora Borealis package has a little bit of everything and a lot of dogs.
