15 of the best spots to catch the northern lights in Canada


Whitehorse, Yukon

The northern lights are visible across the Yukon from fall to spring, but the capital city of Whitehorse is a hot spot for tour operators who offer really neat, specially designed tours. Northern Tales, a popular tour company in the region, has a wide variety of viewing-experiences to choose from. They mix aurora borealis sightings with relaxing getaways in spas and hot springs, remote journeys to secluded cabins and yurts, and vigorous adventures with dog sleds.
