  • What You Can Expect

    This unforgettable cruise begins at the Government Boat Launching Dock in Yellowknife Bay.

    Yellowknife is the capital and only city, as well as the largest community in the Northwest Territories of Canada. It is located on the northern shore of Great Slave Lake, approximately 400 kilometers (250 miles) south of the Arctic Circle, on the west side of Yellowknife Bay near the outlet of the Yellowknife River.

    Wear a warm jacket, then find a comfortable spot in the viewing area. As the boat cuts through the water, gaze around at the beautiful landscape, cloaked in darkness, and listen to the tour guide share fascinating facts about the aurora borealis, including local myths about them. Assistance will be available to help take the best pictures of the Northern Lights.

    Snacks and hot and cold beverages will be served on the boat.

    After 3.5 hours of watching these mesmerizing northern lights, the tour ends with a hotel drop-off.
