Northern Lights and Klondike Gold Rush Experience

7 nights from £2,229 per person Including Flights

Overview

A unique opportunity to combine two great Canadian experiences – viewing the spectacular Northern Lights in the vast skies of the Yukon and discovering the history of the Klondike Gold Rush. You will begin with a few days orientation in Vancouver before flying north to Whitehorse – the capital of the Yukon Territory but with a population of just 25,000 and with an entry in the Guinness World Records as the city with the least air pollution in the world. Here you will view the Northern Lights for the first time on guided evening excursions. Then you will head further north into the Yukon to charismatic Dawson City – home of the Klondike Gold Rush, where you will discover it’s fascinating history and be able to pan for gold yourself!

This is an independent tour, where you will have your transportation included and enjoy the services of local guides on arrival in Whitehorse and Dawson City. Holidays are avaible 1 September to 27 October and 5 January to 23 March. (JV Aurora Klondike Experience)
