The Northern Lights, also known as the Aurora Borealis, is a natural phenomenon attracting travelers to the Yukon Territories of Canada from all corners of the globe. Travelers arrive in anticipation of catching a glimpse of the Northern Lights which illuminate the northern skies and dance with the stars.

Best Northern Lights Viewing Times

The lights are viewed on most nights of the year. However, the weather conditions may impact viewing visibility. The best times to view the Northern Lights are when the skies are clear and the nights are dark. When nights are longer, between October and March, the viewing conditions and colors are best.

It is during the winter months when the skies dance the best with rainbow-like colors - floating in one wave after the another. The colors vary. There are skies painted in green, yellow, blue or red. Green being the most common.

How Do Northern Lights Work

The Northern Lights are a result of a chemical reaction between the sun and our atmosphere. The sun beams down electromagnetic radiation. The radiation beams interact with the gases in the earth's atmosphere. The end result are the Northern Lights. Lucky us!
