Question: When is the best time to go to Yellowknife to see Aurora?
Answer: The best time to come to Yellowknife to see Aurora is August and September! Fall Aurora is more amazing especially when it reflects off the water and the temperatures are much warmer!
Question: What is better, Aurora Camp or Aurora Hunting?
Answer: Aurora Hunting is much better because your chances are higher to see Aurora. Especially when it is cloudy Aurora camps cannot see because they stay in one spot at their camp and see nothing. On those same cloudy nights we have found Aurora because we are mobile, we will drive to many locations. Aurora Hunting gives you higher chance to see Aurora.
Question: Do you pick offer pickup service for Aurora Tour?
Answer: Yes, we offer pickup and dropoff service from all hotels and B&B’s. Most locations are free pickup, however if your hotel (Super 8) or B&B is far from the downtown location, then there is a $5.00+tax or $10.00+tax/person pickup charge.
Question: How long is the Aurora Tour?
Answer: Our Aurora Hunting Tours are about 4.0hrs, sometimes we will stay longer if Aurora is good. Other companies stick to a set time schedule but we are more flexible. Both of our Aurora Snowmobile Tours and our Aurora Photography Tours are 5.0hrs from the time we pick up and drop you off at your hotel or B&B.
