Mother Nature is boss, so some nights the weather may not be good and we may not see Aurora. So try to book your tour after reviewing the weather forecast for those dates. Because of this, some months are better than others for viewing Aurora. We recommend the following months (in order of best to worst) to visit Yellowknife:
Best month: September (warm temperatures, Aurora reflecting off the water, amazing!)
2nd best month: August (warmer temperatures, Aurora reflecting off the water, amazing!)
3rd best month: April (blue skies, blue Aurora! sunny days, warmer temperatures!)
4th best month: March (warmer weather, more clear nights, Snow Castle is open!)
5th best month: January (clear nights, very cold, maybe -40C!)
6th best month: February (clear night, still very cold, maybe -40C!)
7th best month: December (some clear nights, some cloudy nights, ice road opens!)
8th best month: October (usually clouds start mid month, low chance to see Aurora)
9th best month: November (usually starts to clear end of month, low chance to see Aurora)
