Northern Lights Getaway Spectacular Light Show and Northern Hospitality
Head true north for a magical experience in Yellowknife under the shimmer of the northern lights. This package is available August till April and includes two nights’ accommodation and Aurora viewing at Aurora Village.
Make those northern lights dreams a reality with your Cree and Métis guides from the Morin family of Fort Resolution at Yellowknife’s unique Aurora Village. While northern lights and cold nights go together, you don’t have to be uncomfortable here: savour snacks and hot drinks at the dining hall, enjoy the crackle of a wood fire in a cozy teepee, and yes, there are warm, well-lit bathrooms on site!
Explore Aurora Village and find your perfect place to enjoy the shimmering lights—whether it’s with a group at the teepee or somewhere more secluded— there are five panoramic viewing hills on this spacious wilderness property on a frozen lake, plenty of room to marvel at the night skies with company or alone in nature. Curl up in our custom-made heated outdoor viewing seats that swivel 360 degrees, so you can catch every angle of the aurora borealis. These unique seats were designed in consultation with local elders to resemble traditional sleighs, watch the skies in comfort and feel the wonder of this natural phenomenon.
From November to April, Aurora Village also transforms into a winter wonderland by day where you can explore the landscape on snowshoes, learn the exhilaration of mushing a dog team across the snow or indulge your inner big kid zooming down our giant snow slide! Sleep in comfort each night at the Chateau Nova, and warm up from your snowy adventures in the steam room or sauna. Enjoy delicious food at the in-house Quarry Restaurant, try their famous Bison Burger or indulge in beer-battered local market fish and chips!
