Holiday Overview

Northern Lights from Southern Lakes Resort 


View the spectacular Northern Lights from Southern Lakes Resort in the Yukon. The Southern Lakes Resort lies in the heart of the Traditional Territory of the Carcross and Tagish First Nation, the resort is in the rugged beauty of Yukon’s northern landscape. The Southern Lakes Resorts offers an authentic Yukon experience viewing the Northern Lights.

The Yukon is a fantastic place to view the Aurora in the night sky, relax or explore as the sky lights up with the beautiful green lights as they begin to ripple through the night sky. During the day take part in different adventure activities including snowshoeing or dog sledding.

Day 1 - Whitehorse to Southern Lakes Resort

Departing from Whitehorse by floatplane or shuttle (depending on the season), you arrive at the resort and check into your private cabin nestled near the lakeside at 15:00.

Late arrivals will be supplied a light in-room snack. Although part of the compound, the cabins are set far enough from the main building and other guest buildings to create a true sense of privacy. Enjoy a delicious dinner prepared with Yukon flair in the main building. In the evening, look to the sky for the incredible Northern Lights as cascading emerald greens mix with vibrant pinks and blues in a dazzling display.
