I had heard from friends that went several years before that it was a great experience but apparently since then they have been growing too much and not keeping the quality of the service. They pack people on their buses, sometimes 8 or 9 buses a night and bring them to a area where they jam you into teepees with no room to sit. They spend the 30 bus trip saying you will see the Aurora even if the possibility is very low that night. They also spend this trip telling you how much it cost of rental of cameras, heated seats, etc etc. I total RIP OFF. I am embarrassed as a person who lives in Yellowknife that Tourists get scammed by this company.

Our tour group unfortunately flew into Yellowknife on 16 March only to learn that Aurora Village had just closed due to new government restrictions relating to the coronavirus. However I wanted to give a big wrap to James Robinson from Aurora Village who was extremely patient and helpful to all of us under very difficult circumstances. If this is any indication of the service we would have received at the actual village then I couldnt recommend it highly enough.

The night we went, it was about -22 F (-30 C), so very cold. We really appreciated the dark skies and being able to go back to the warm teepee periodically. We also happened to see some great Aurora, so the whole thing was definitely worthwhile. While there were some aspects that were a bit touristy, the overall experience was streamlined and convenient. I'd recommend it if you're looking for a convenient way to see the Aurora from a place with dark skies.

This was the only large tour we booked on our trip North. I expected large crowds competing to view the aurora but I was pleasantly surprised. The layout of the village is such that you hardly notice you are with hundreds of other viewers!
