Mix traditional Native American living with modern amenities when you stay at Aurora Village.

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.

  • Took part in the three-day tour. The staff was the Japanese almost in Canada coming to Canada. Visitors are Japanese, Chinese, South Koreans and Asians only. Description of the tour was the Aurora can be observed daily observation rate was over 95% of the real in three days. However, Aurora is due to its size level are divided into the level 1-that levels up to 5 is like. As seen on TV, in the shape of curtain movement are level 5. 4 level I move a little. I'm moving it here often look? The level 3 on the first day was pretty disappointed. Did not know and only takes like a hazy sky, Aurora is really in the eyes with white's first Aurora. No light around the star is really clean, the. 二日 eyes are at level 5 move greatly impressed. If you hit level 5 so you can admire the northern lights of the everyday shape of curtain is pretty impressed. I think I will see only one day when I was good to go. Staff I though everyone was bright and good people.

  • 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.
  • although the teepee wasn't the warmest we saw the strongest aurora here at aurora village.
  • It is a Repeater. You could see the northern lights at least three days, this time in early February,-34 ° C during the three days every night from the city of Yellowknife Aurora Village attended. Level 5, level 3, level 5. Having seen the curtain???? in color with the naked eye is satisfied. When it came to the last (few years ago March) were Aurora explosion. Rate of Aurora appearance here is phenomenal. Assigned a cabin stay while waiting for Aurora, nuku nuku and relax in the fireplace while so. In the hut all day with free tea and coffee, tea, hot chocolate, (self service). Hot pot can be used at any time, so you can make ramen as well as. Gift shop and restaurant, WC some locations installed and is not disabled. Only three places are able to smoke cigarettes, and of course outdoor. The bed clothes in the local book Aurora Village and rents (up and down with the hood, gloves and boots, main hats) cold weather equipment set, so. It includes the transfer from easier! option, can include sightseeing, dining and dog sledding, cangeki walk. Guide it is in Japanese. Aurora Village, it is recommended!

  • Levels 2 to 4 in Aurora was 11/2013 at the end of two-day! * Hot water-well empties of 13 ° C and artificial diamond, impressed other customers! (However, the staff was noted severe...) quick lunch can ice skate in a boat instead of a tired dog is pushing dog sled (lol), slide! The extremely bitter Marshmallow eating delicious, stick in a little scorched over an open flame from you (lol)
