Good morning, I am sorry my response has been delayed. Our trip to Whitehorse and excursion activities were refreshing and overwhelming pleasant. We have taken numerous trips where the guides rushed through information or didn't seem totally interested in their product. We all thoroughly enjoyed the vast knowledge of the guides and genuine love of the area and their mission.... More

The guides who took us out each night were lovely and full of information not only about the Lights but also many other things like trails to hike. They always answered emails promptly and answered ALL my... More

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 and happy and it all went so smoothly. Even if we weren't graced with the... More

Northern Tales is the best tour company to see the Northern lights! Erika and Anila were in constant communication with us (via email...they really don't talk with you over the phone...best way is to email back and forth)to make sure we had everything that we needed for this tour. I would highly recommend them if you are going to Whitehorse!... More

We loved everything about our trip!! My 5 year old son and 65 year old father loved every minute. The aurora tours were great. We enjoyed the night sky, hot chocolate, roasting marshmallows over the fire and the little toboggan hill also kept us busy for awhile. I also find it amazing that all the photos you take are posted... More
