The Yukon is one of the best places to see the awe-inspiring Northern Lights and the Aurora Borealis start at the end of August, so you can have a summer holiday and still enjoy the Northern Lights. September is a great time to enjoy the Yukon due to the good weather and autumn colours and this holiday runs from the beginning of September to the end of October, and then through the winter months from January to the end of March.
This itinerary is great to add-on to a longer holiday in western Canada and can be tailor-made to suit you. Talk to one of our experts about how to make this holiday the perfect one for you.
This holiday includes
– flights and transfers in the Yukon
– 4 nightly guided Aurora Viewing excursions
– 3-hour City and Goldfields of Dawson Tour
– 1.5-hour Historic Dawson City Walking Tour
– Dawson City Museum visit including admission
– breakfast on both days in Dawson City
– and in the winter months, a 4-day winter clothing package (jacket, pants, boots, gloves/mitts, hat/toque)

"We are in love with Canada"
Thank you enormously for the fabulous holiday you put in place for us. Everything went smoothly and the hotels were great. The Fairmont at Jasper were amazing - upgraded us, provided champagne and strawberries for our anniversary! Our favourite hotel was probably the Magnolia in Victoria which was just lovely - beautifully presented and such friendly and helpful staff. We are in love with Canada and would love to go back - the Rockies were literally awesome, and we also really enjoyed the buzz of vancouver and victoria. It all went far too quickly and hopefully we can return and do it all again! If so, I would not hesitate to come back to you and will recommend you to anyone I can.
