Aurora Borealis
, Feb 2020
Amit and Nikki are an amazing pair to travel with. They started the trip with a van load of disappointed travelers who were on their third night out without viewing the Aurora. Amit took us to several different spots, and then finally bingo!!. He knew exactly where to go, and ensured we saw the beautiful lights before we left yellowknife. And Nikki patiently took beautiful pictures of us, despite the freezing cold. The best team ever!! Thank you both!!
Real light hunting tour
, Feb 2020
Me and my husband had an amazing experience of Aurora light with Amits, Nikki and the driver. They are really hunting the light by adjusting the route to catch the best view at the right spot and time. Plus Nikki took photo for everyone as many as she can and share online for us to download within the night. Everything was wonderful.
Dancing Aurora

Our tour was excellent it was the most amazing Aurora night! Our guide was knowledgeable in every area from the history of Yellowknife to camera settings to Aurora! They added a special touch to the tour.
Great experience, saw lots of aurora
, Feb 2020
I could feel the passion of the guides. They were very knowledgeable and did their best to show us the aurora. We saw a lot last night and we saw one in every lake stop! The pictures we have turned out great too. The photographer was very professional and my husband and I were amazed at how she was always so willing to take photos, as if she didn't feel the -46C weather. Overall it was very reasonably priced and comfortable. Good for our first nights tour. Thank you so much Yellowknife Vacations!
Excellent Experience

The guide was great and very interactive, she took a lot of good pictures and made the tour interesting. Anyday they are better than Aurora Village. Thanks for the memories.
a Great Aurora Tour
, Dec 2019
Aurora Tour by Yellowknife Vacation was a great booking to choose, the reason to this is because it comes in a small group of 15 to 17 people max, they provide pick up/ and drop off. They guide you to different lakes in their comfortable bus and provide hot chocolate and cookies. they also let you know when the aurora is out and provide pictures for you. they teach you how to take a picture with your camera. give small information about the aurora. and best of all they are just nice. to our Guide Amit and Niki, They where very informative, nice, and handled the group very well. Pics where awesome as well.

First of all, whether we can watch aurora is not their fault. Given it, Amet and Ricky did their best for us. They picked us up and drove us back. Not only taking us to the several aurora spots, but also giving us cookies and hot chocolate(Since it's around -40°C, these treats helped us a lot) and taking many great pictures (As many as we want!) with great camera and send it to us later. Thanks to them, we could have a great time. Thank you so much! まず、オーロラがいかにクリアに観られるか否かはツアーガイドの責任ではないのでそれを考慮したうえで、アメットとリッキーは凄く良くしてくれました。送迎と幾つかのオーロラスポットへの移動に加え、クッキーとココアの給付(-40°Cの世界なのですごくありがたかったです)カメラでの写真撮影など、彼らのおかげですごく楽しむことができました。
A thumb-up to our guide - Tom
, Dec 2019
Must give a thumb-up to Tom, he is great in his job, not only has rich knowledge to northern light, but knows a lot of tips for living in yellowknife. His picture-taking skill is wonderful, we fully appreciate his effort of taking pictures for us in -48 cold winter night. Tom is really a valuable asset in your organization. No doubt, we will recommend up-coming tourists enjoying Tom's service.
Great service, quick response, wonderful unlimited photos
, Nov 2019
Quick confirmation, great service and explanation about the aurora. The guides really gave their hearts to chase the lights, went through 4 viewing spots, and taught us a few key things to chase the lights for the remaining of our stay. Worth mentioning that what this tour is different vs other tours is that there are unlimited number of photos included in the package, and the photographer does encourage everyone of us to take photos and be creative with the shots
Excellent experience

Amin and Amy tried very hard to hunt for Aurora Borealis when we went for viewing Aurora on a cloudy , full moon night. The trip was well planned as mentioned in the itinerary.
