Thank you for visiting our homepage!

Aurora Village is your Yellowknife destination to view the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights.  This year we plan to renew and improve this website. We welcome your questions and feedback and will do our best to respond your comments.  One feature of this website is the “Aurora Calendar”, which is updated daily with the previous night’s Aurora photos.  It is an attempt to let more people know about the Aurora Borealis in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories.This season Aurora Village is celebrating its 10th anniversary and thanks to our guests, this has become the most recognized Aurora viewing establishment in Canada. Globally, it is a unique establishment offering full facilities and service. In the extreme cold of Canada’s far north, we have devised ways for guests to enjoy a pleasant and safe Aurora experience.
As an Aurora viewing destination, Yellowknife boasts the highest percentage of Aurora sightings.  The Aurora Ovals are located in the atmosphere in the areas surrounding the Earth’s magnetic poles.  Yellowknife is situated in an advantageous position under the Northern Aurora Oval based on magnetic latitude. Yellowknife is far from the ocean with a flat geographical landscape meaning this location has a high percentage of clear skies. These factors, combined with latitudinal position, equals a high probability of Aurora Borealis sightings.
