And here is one of the few places in the world where you can watch as the aurora borealis sparkles bright in the sky. The north truly is a place of wonder, and that’s exactly why your excursion begins here. Arriving in the afternoon, you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy at leisure and explore this gold-rush city. Pop in at one of the many galleries and museums, or take a stroll along the banks of the Yukon River. This evening, set out on your viewing of the northern lights. You’ll be cosy inside a heated tent or cabin, and filled with anticipation. Bundle up and sip a hot chocolate to help keep warm!
