Day One - Vancouver to Whitehorse
Today you will fly from YVR in Vancouver to Whitehorse. You will need to make your way to the airport. Please be sure to arrive 90 minutes before your flight to make sure that you have time to check-in. The trip will take you 2 hours and 30 minutes.

Remember that the Lights are not guaranteed, and often the viewings take place in the early morning.
Day Two and Three - Whitehorse
On these days you will take part in a two-hour dog mushing adventure. This is possibly the most authentic experience that you can do in the Yukon. There will also be plenty of time for ice fishing, tobogganing and snowmobiling. You will have a bonfire and bison smokies to round out your day at the lake. There is a wildlife preserve close and a hot tub to relax in before the main attraction, the viewing of the Northern Lights.
Day Four - Whitehorse to Vancouver
Today the lodge will transfer you back to Whitehorse for you to catch your flight back to Vancouver. We hope that this experience has left you with the memories of the Yukon and the Northern Lights, one that you will never forget.
