01   Aurora Borealis

Yukon is one of the best places in North America to see the northern lights. Located near the magnetic poles, the skies come alive in fall, winter and even into spring season. Increased solar activity in the next few years also means the lights will be more frequent, brighter and intense.

It is Yukon's only hot springs, with Scandinavian and Japanese Onsen healing practices blended together to create an exclusive wellness experience.

03   Winter Activties

Before checking out the northern lights at night, there are still plenty of time for you to experience outdoor winter activities. Snowmobiling across the lake, ice fishing while drilling a hole into the depth of ice, fat biking with oversized tires through untouched trails and more. Get out there to the frozen field and be adventurous.
