“Canada's premier Aurora viewing location”

Aurora Village is the premier aurora-viewing site in Canada. Located only 30 minutes from downtown Yellowknife, it is designed for a unique aurora experience in maximum comfort in the extreme temperature of the north. We welcome all visitors from overseas, as well as locals alike. Globally, it is a unique establishment offering full facilities and service. In the extreme cold of Canada’s far north, we have devised ways for guests to enjoy a pleasant and safe Aurora experience.As an Aurora viewing destination, Yellowknife boasts the highest percentage of Aurora sightings.  The Aurora Ovals are located in the atmosphere in the areas surrounding the Earth’s magnetic poles.  Yellowknife is situated in an advantageous position under the Northern Aurora Oval based on magnetic latitude. Yellowknife is far from the ocean with a flat geographical landscape meaning this location has a high percentage of clear skies. These factors, combined with latitudinal position, equals a high probability of Aurora Borealis sightings. Our native culture together with nature and its beauty can be seen in all its glory at Aurora Village.It is not only possible to look up to the sky to view the wonderful aurora but also all around you to experience a place that is rich in tradition and culture.You can appreciate the aurora from any direction in our outdoor heated seats that rotate 360 degrees for your comfort and enjoyment. Experience the magic of the Aurora Borealis with our spectacular aurora viewing tour.Find that perfect view from a nearby hilltop, or curl up in one of our reclining, heated outdoor viewing seats or teepees while you take in the aurora. Alate night snack of delicious soup and bannock will be served in our spacious dining hall, where you can slso watch a slideshow of recent aurora on the big screen. Price includes return transportation from Yellowknife hotels, hot beverage, soup, bannock and accessto heated viewing seats. 8:30p.m.-1:00 a.m.

Came here 3 different nights. It is rather expensive but if your wanting to see the northern lights in comfort this is the best place. By far. It can be difficult to sign up but its best to just get them on the phone to figure it all out!
