Northern Tales Tours is definitely the only way to see this part of the Yukon. From the time of making reservations to the return trip home we were looked after like family. That takes a lot of coordination to keep a group of 17 together...More

We would like to visit Whitehorse and join the northern lights tours in Yukon. Please advise pricing information so we can start planning our trip in March 2017. We have 6-8 people.

We are looking at a Northern Lights Tour before we go skiing in Whistler in early January 2018. Can you recommend a good package for us from Vancouver that would suit a group of possibly 4 couples? When would we need to book this and what is the best way to book? Also will the clothes that we have for skiing in Whistler be warm enough or should we look at getting the clothing package? Regards Sharon in Australia
