Yellowknife – The Aurora Viewing Capital of the World
Yellowknife, acknowledged as one of the world’s best and reliable aurora viewing locations, is a modern city of some 20 000 easily accessible by air situated on the shore of the mighty Great Slave Lake in the middle of a vast wilderness area.
Fall and Winter are the two great aurora viewing seasons with tours combining accommodation in Yellowknife and viewing from lakeside sites to more exotic packages featuring snow mobiling and dog sledding in season, aurora hunting in heated vehicles, viewing from a cruiser on the Great Slave Lake or from a rented lakeside cabin.
Dog Sledding combines perfectly with aurora viewing and Momento offers experiences for dog lovers ranging from kennel visits year round to dog carting in summer, dog sled rides in winter, tours to many of the famous races and, for the fitter and more adventurous, dog mushing (sled driving) by the day or on multi day basis with the option of camping in the snow.
Learn and experience dog mushing from expert guides and see the wonders of the Northern Lights.
The following are a small sample of available tours – please enquire for the more exotic options.
