Yellowknife & Northwest Territories
Almost every night in winter, Yellowknife’s clear skies dance and shimmer with the greens, blues and whites of this incredible spectacle. Set in the wondrous natural surroundings of Great Slave Lake is a remarkably modern city where you can experience rustic nature and traditional culture without forgoing urban amenities. Whether you are driving on an ice road; dancing under the aurora borealis; enjoying a dogsled ride; golfing under the midnight sun; fishing for world class trophies; or watching the creation of a brilliant northern diamond, you will enjoy the character of the city and feel the warmth of authentic Northern hospitality.

There are two great aurora viewing seasons:
Fall (mid-August to early October) and winter (mid- December to mid-April).
