Landmark Wildlife Area
Mix traditional Native American living with modern amenities when you stay at Aurora Village. At the attraction, visitors spend the night in a wood-heated teepee stocked with hot chocolate to keep out the region's cold climate. A highlight here is the viewing of the aurora borealis--the Northern Lights. Staff find you when it's time to observe this nighttime wonder. You can also take part in other activities like dogsledding here, and a restaurant and lodge are on-site as well.

  • Don't freeze your butt in -40c to save a few bucks. If you're coming to Yellowknife for aurora, you must come here. Yes you can see it on your own outside of town, but the village offers comfort and ease of access. Rent your clothing with them as well as tripod if you need to. Offered hot water isnt quite hot enough for cup noodle.
  • Clothing rental is worn-out with unpresent smell. Place full of working holiday staff; staff without much local experience. The lake and place to view the Aurora is fine.
  • A tour company that brings people in a bus to this remote location to view aurora borealis between 9 pm-2 am. Pricy, but worth spending the money since they provides tipis where you can warm up in between the sightings. Compared to the native indian operated tour company, a very commercialized and seems to be cut and dry. But if you are there for viewing Aurora Borealis, worth the money.
  • although the teepee wasn't the warmest we saw the strongest aurora here at aurora village.
  • Lots of winter fun!
