Aurora Village, Yellowknife

(3.4/5 based on 280+ 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.

  • イエローナイフでのオーロラ鑑賞の為、オーロラビレッジ主催のパッケージに申し込み参加しました。 パッケージなので、空港送迎、宿泊、オーロラ鑑賞ツアー3日間、防寒具レンタルがついてます。 極寒の地、また田舎の地域なので個人手配は無理があるので申し込みして良かったです。何より防寒具レンタルはかなり助かりました。 −20度以下の地なので、日本のスキーウエアなどではとても太刀打ちできません。 極寒地仕様の品...  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
