The best Aurora Viewing Location in Yellowknife is Aurora Village – aboriginally owned and operated. A picturesque gathering of traditional Teepees and hilltop viewpoints surrounding a pristine frozen lake – a magical place to experience the best light show on earth.
Take a guided walk on the back trails of Aurora Village on traditional snowshoes. Learn about the flora and fauna that people of this land have used for centuries. Our cultural snowshoe experience takes you on a journey into the woods where you will learn about the local traditions and the wild lands of the north.
Walk over ancient volcanic rocks from four billion years ago and make your way to a cascading waterfall! This is a 4-hour tour but don’t worry about getting overly tired – it takes less than an hour to hike out to the falls of the Cameron River from the trail head.
