Aurora Village, Yellowknife
(3.5/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 這裡第一次加時費用CAD25/人, 服務員說我們要得話趕快去加錢, 但無法給予任何可以預判極光出現的專業資訊, 完全看運氣! Aurora自詡是專業的極光村, 提供的專業訊息卻是這般的不負責任, 我們不要求精確, 只希望有些訊息參考, 而不是在完全茫然的情況下做決定. 另我們在行前己在溫哥華報名city tour並己繳錢, 一到黃刀鎮機場, 服務員卻說我們没報名, 必需自己去office報名, 我...  more »

  • 看極光都選擇跟local tour, 除非你懂看天文地理夜觀星象。 大部分人都會考慮aurora village 跟極光獵人。 我逗留在黃刀4 個晚上,分配了2 晚跟獵人 ; 2 晚跟 aurora village. 唯一看上aurora village 的就是它有特色原住民帳篷,當極光前景一流。由於我在黃刀那幾晚天氣大多不算好, 有雲甚至下雨。坐在aurora village 裡只是守株待兔,若...  more »

  • Well the experience of aurora is always one of a kind. It's hard to take picture of it but you can always play in your camera settings. YOU NEED A TRIPOD to take great photo. The tour guides are very friendly and nice. The hot choco in the tent is awesome! The photographer are not so nice and won't tell instruction if you want to take professional grade pic with aurora.( quite understandable as the aurora changes and might be gone after a couple of mins) So just stay still and smile. The whole experience is way better in person and aurora is more beautiful with your eyes.
  • terrible experience,l hated everything,they just fake to be polite,big liar,everthing is terrible,go to other company ,please!Do not waste time on them,all them are liar,disgusting
  • aurora village idea was good but it's dangerous place. I was there last week to take picture of aurora. Because everybody was there to take picture, you can not turn on the flash lights. There are lots of rocks and uneven grounds. I was going to use restroom. The sign was not lighted and I ended up at the mens bathroom. Looking for women's bathroom I tripped and fell, fell flat on my side. I was in pain for the rest of the trip. When you can not turn on the light it's not safe to walk around. They also put customers by race. Asian in one teepee, other race in diffrent teepee. Come on we are living in 21st century !!
  • “Magically beguiling and spellbinding Auroras in a surreal setting!” We had the blessings to experience spectacular and majestic auroras for three days straight! I booked online and Ayaka was super competent and ultra nice. Staff at Aurora were well-trained, helpful and cheerful. They were always on time and our English speaking guide, Carmen was a true gem. She found chairs for us to view the AB and was always around to assist us in a friendly manner.The bed at Explorer hotel was so comfy. A pre fix dinner at the Lodge is a must as the buffalo prime rib was truly sensational. Dog sled ride was fun and the sponge slide was well worth the climb up the stairs. A big round of applause for Aurora Village!!!
  • Pretty good
