If you haven't experienced the magic of the Northern Lights, then you need to put a visit to this resort on your bucket list! The Northern Lights Resort & Spa is truly a hidden gem and it's 20 minutes south of Whitehorse in the Yukon. You'll have a peaceful getaway nestled in the Yukon River Valley surrounded by pine forests and mountains.
The resort has brand-new Aurora Glass Chalets for the ultimate Northern Lights experience. These glass fronted chalets were built specifically for you to watch the Aurora Borealis at play and to feel close to nature. Each chalet is fitted with everything you need to be comfortable. It's definitely not a 'roughing it out in the wild' kind of vacation.
Inside the chalet, the bed is so close to the floor-to-ceiling wrap around windows. Your panoramic view of the sky is unparalleled. Not only will you get a chance to view the blue-green Northern Lights, but you'll also have a front row seat to the changing colours of the sky as the sun rises and sets. Imagine lying in bed and watching the starry sky put on a magical show!
The resort has a spa, lounge, dining room and a bar offering everything you need to relax and indulge. Forget your troubles in their outdoor Jacuzzi and infrared sauna. You can also take part in outdoor activities and tours to explore the wild northern landscape.
The Glass Chalets are gorgeous and even luxurious, but there are also cozy timber cabins and a teepee available to rent. Both of them look amazing in photos, too!
The remote location of this resort makes viewing the Northern Lights at night even better since it's far removed from city light pollution. Your view of the night sky is open and unobscured since the resort sits on a clear, rural property. Go ahead, book your stay and finally cross off 'see the Northern Lights' on your bucket list!
