What you'll do

I'll pick you up from your accommodation at night and we'll drive to our cabin/viewing site (25 mins north of Whitehorse City)... best area with the chance to see Northern Lights (Aurora) here. It has an open field on the north with nothing blocking our view so that the very low Aurora can be seen here. Weather permitting, we see Aurora almost every night as we are located at the best area with the chance to see Aurora just outside of Whitehorse city. We do not have to drive for hours.... Total duration of the tour is about 4.5 hours. We will wait and watch the aurora from the comfort of our rustic and warm cabin... watching from the windows. Go out only if you like (esp to take photos) and come into the cabin as soon as you feel cold. Don't need to worry about the -30 degrees temperature or be cramped in a foggy vehicle. We provide free flow of hot drinks and snacks. Sharp wide-angled photos of you (with aurora on the background) are taken and given to you at no additional fee. We do not need to "chase the Aurora" in a cramp vehicle (which many people can do on their own)... it's up in the sky so we wait for it to appear inside the warm comfort of our cabin! We can start a bonfire (campfire) outside if needed and you can BBQ your own meat, sausages or marshmallows.

I have been guiding northern lights (Aurora) tours for years with some leading companies in Whitehorse. With these experience, I started my own and chose the best location just north of Whitehorse city.. designed and built a rustic heated cabin (with north facing windows) at an open land with nothing blocking the north.. dark and with no city lights so that very low lying Aurora can be seen here. Aurora always appears on the north first.. sometimes it's just above the horizon the whole night (especially when it's weak) so our site the best place to see it (no mountain blocking). I am very passionate about my job and provide very personal service. I provide free flow of hot drinks, snacks, etc so that you can enjoy viewing the Aurora thru' the window of our warm cabin. I also take sharp photos of you (with Aurora as backdrop) for free!

Where you'll be

Our cabin is located at a private land and NO others will be there. Alcohol is allowed as it's private property and no other vehicles/people will be shining their lights/headlamp while we take photos and enjoy the aurora.... BEST place/area to watch the aurora privately.

BEST experience!! Khoon picks everyone up from their location and very knowledgeable and friendly. The cabin location is a GREAT spot to see the Aurora lights. We had a diverse group of people in my tour and all of us had so much fun together. Snacks and hot drinks were provided. Also, the pictures he takes for us are beautiful and included in the tour. I would book again with Khoon.

Everything is exactly the same as described. Khoon picked us up at our hotel and took us to his cabin. He told us a lot of interesting stories of Yukon on the way. The cabin is located far outside of town in the north (~30 minutes drive), which keeps us away from the light pollution of Whitehorse. It was a very cozy and warm cabin and has hot tea, coffee, snack, and pretty much everything you need. The most important thing is that it has two big windows facing the north. Because of that we could sit on the chairs near the window and watch Aurora through the window. There is a wide open area in front of the cabin so there isn't anything that blocks your view. We were very luck to see the Aurora around 11:00PM and it was definitely an AMAZING experience. Khoon took photos for each of us with his professional camera for free. It got cloudy after 1:00 AM, but that's the nature which is out of our control and we were grateful for what we had saw. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend it!
