See the dancing Northern Lights in Yukon and immerse yourself in winter adventures in the Canadian Rockies!

Experience the splendor of a winter wonderland, made so much more magnificent with towering snow-capped mountains in the background. Visit the world-renowned Lake Louise and the famous Banff town, one of UNESCO’s world heritage sites. In Banff, ride the gondola up Sulphur Mountain for views that will take your breath away! Then discover the secret in the Cave and Basin tour that led to the discovery of this amazing mountain national park. Your winter adventures will also bring you the wonders of ice-walking in a canyon, the thrill of tubing down a mountain and get on a wildlife tour in this snowy landscape – learning about how animals survive in the cold wintry season. Optional tours like dog-sledding, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and caving can also be included during your adventure in the Rockies.

In Yukon, seize the opportunity of your lifetime to catch the spectacular Northern Lights – the Aurora Borealis. For 2 nights, you will be transported from your hotel to a heated cabin or wall tent, out in the open darkness, to catch the Aurora Borealis. During your days there, you will visit the Yukon Wildlife Preserve where you can watch and photograph the Dall Sheep, Bighorn Sheep, Mountain Goat, Deer, Elk, Woodland Caribou, Wood Bison, Musk-Ox and Moose – all in their natural habitat. You will also get the chance to soak in the Takhini Hot Springs in an open Yukon winter landscape.
