Yukon Aurora Borealis

3 Day Roundtrip Vancouver

Price from$1,310

To the north an eerie, sulfurous-green sheen begins to ripple into the night sky. It arcs itself into an ebb and flow, slowly growing, then suddenly bursts across the full expanse of the night sky waving and dancing as if it were happy. It's the spectacular and mystical Northern Lights and viewings such as the one above are common in the Yukon.
