Day 1: Arrive in Vancouver. Transfer to downtown hotel with local escort.
Day 2: Vancouver sightseeing. Our Hop-On, Hop-Off Sightseeing Bus Pass is a fun and flexible way to see the best of Vancouver! Take a bus, stop at a location, browse around for as long as you want and then hop back onto the next coming bus to move onto the next attraction! You will experience downtown Vancouver at leisure as the bus circles through a series of cultural districts, seaside points of interest, and Stanley Park. Clear top buses for stunning views, rain or shine, and full commentary in English, French, Spanish, German, Japanese, Korean and Mandarin.
Then, experience the FlyOver Canada experience. The show utilizes state-of-the-art technology to give you the feeling of flight. You will hang suspended, feet dangling, before a 20-metre spherical screen while the film takes you away on an exhilarating 8-minute journey across Canada, from east to west. Special effects, including wind, mist and scents, combine with the ride’s motion to create an unforgettable experience.
Day 3: Departure transfer to Vancouver airport. Fly to Whitehorse. Meet and greet tour guide at Whitehorse airport. Transfer to downtown hotel with tour guide
Night 10.30pm departure for Northern Lights viewing at the AuroraCentre in the comfort of insulated yurts with a steaming hot drink. The location has pristine, unhindered views across the horizon which lets you enjoy the phenomenon of the Aurora Borealis to its fullest.
When we stand under the Yukon sky surrounded by mile upon mile of Yukon’s wilderness, we can’t help but think of what the ancients, our ancestors might have thought as they too stood spell bound by
the Northern Lights. It’s little wonder that they believed the Northern Lights to be the spirits of the departed or the Gods themselves. Yukon is one of the best places on earth to see the northern lights– colourful bands of light that dance in the dark night sky. While the northern lights occur year-round, summer’s near-constant daylight makes seeing them next to impossible. In the autumn, winter and early spring, however, clear, dark nights lend themselves to stunning displays.
Day 4: Depart at 10.30am for our guided Whitehorse town tour including stops at the Wooden Fish Ladder, White Pass & Yukon Route Building and Main Street , all with our tour guide.
Late evening departure for Aurora viewing at AuroraCentre with tour guide.
Day 5: Transfer to Whitehorse airport for our return flight with check-in assistance by local guide.
