Between 1.00pm and 3.00pm, we will bring you to the Northern Lights Resort & Spa. Relax, unwind and soak up the peaceful ambiance. Located just 20 minutes south of Whitehorse, this little piece of paradise is the Yukon´s newest get-away destination – a hideaway located in a quiet open countryside close to the Yukon River, surrounded by pine forests and ringed by mountains. Built from massive Douglas Fir and to meet European standards by your German-Canadian hosts, the 3600 sq foot lodge features a luxurious great room for guest gathering, relaxing, breakfast and dinner use with a dramatic panoramic view of the Yukon River valley and the mountain range. Guests stay in the cozy guest room with large en-suite bathroom in the lodge or in a well-appointed 320 sq/ft. cottage featuring a large living/bedroom with fireplace, adjacent kitchen and en-suite bathroom. The spa & wellness area is located in the main building and features a finish sauna, infrared sauna, whirlpool, rest room and a room for massage treatments.
The surroundings are perfect for relaxing in the guest lounge, the large deck or the privacy of your own cottage, enjoying the spectacular views of the Northern Lights in winter. The open area surrounding the lodge allows unobscured views of the soaring Aurora!
In the evening enjoy a delicious 3 course dinner. After the dinner make sure to stay up to view the mystical Aurora Borealis. Watch them dancing either from the hot tub, the open field or from the cozy inside – you will have a great outlook towards North from anywhere.
Day 3 Whitehorse (B/-/D)
Wake up to a healthy European-style breakfast and spend your days relaxing in the lodge in front of the fireplace.
Talk with your host about breakfast times. Since you will be up late the night before, you may not want to have breakfast too early. Go for a snow shoe hike, or plan a day out dog sledding (optional tours). Enjoy the sauna and a customized massage treatment in our spa. Or simply relax in the outdoor hot tub on the large deck under the breathtaking northern sky.
In the evening, after dinner, you may stay up late again to view the Aurora Borealis.
