This was a wonderful tour and covered all the basis. Our driver, Winifred, and the 2 guides were informative and courteous. They even made us soup and buns one night. We did several tours at night in search of the Aurora, and found it twice, as well as a city tour during the day. It was magnificent!! Arctic tours supplied warm gear for us at an extra cost. I would recommend Arctic Tours to see the Aurora Borealis.

Had the best time Aurora hunting with them! We went Aurora hunting three nights in a row and were lucky enough to see it all three nights! Patrick helped us take lovely photos too and he is super funny which made the tours even more fun!

If you’re going to Yellowknife these are the go-to tour company, hands down! I did the Aurora Hunting Tour with them which was incredible - we were driven to various spots with our amazing guides taking us to the best places to view the Aurora. It was such an incredible experience. And the staff made it even more fantastic, making it a whole round experience, not just the Aurora. They were super knowledgeable, fun, friendly, kind, really went out of their way to make sure you had the best time. I can’t rate them highly enough. Jessica is amazing. She very kindly emailed all the photos she took as part of the package, where she only had to give a few as advertised. I’ve booked 5 other tours with these guys (just got back from the Lakeside Cabin and Traditional Teepee Tour! Which was equally as brilliant - amazing staff again in Bill and Theo. Can’t say enough good things about them! Again, they went above and beyond to give the best experience. Took lots of photos again for us. Served the best clam chowder I have ever had - homemade by Rebecca. So many personal touches that make everything that extra special and memorable. Arctic Tours Canada are awesome! They are the very best!!!

Artic Tours made our trip to Yellowknife wonderful! We took their snowmobiling, snowshoeing, city tour, and northern lights via cabin tours. Their staff is helpful, friendly, and informative. They include thoughtful touches like providing warm beverages and snacks and photography.

Thank you Arctic Tour for bringing us such a memorable once in a lifetime experience. The tour guides (Bill, Patrick and Jessica) who are very professional and courteous have been taking good care of us. Weather and northern lights are unforeseeable but luckily we are still able to see the northern lights 3 nights out of 4. On one of the nights when the lights showed up late, Patrick allowed us to stay later than the original end time for us to enjoy the lights more. We really appreciate that. Thank you guys for your hard work in creating the best experience for us!

We took the 5 day/4 night tour and had a great time. On arrival we met Bill and he provided us with our printed schedule. During the tour I was phoned to ask about swapping the order of 2 activities due to the weather. It was great for them to be proactive and consult with us.

The aurora were awesome on 3 of the nights. First two night were the aurora hunting then the skydome and the cabin for the last night. We also did city tour, dogsledding and snowshoeing. Pickups and transport was effective and safe.

We bought the addon package of 10 pictures and the pictures were taken by Patrick on our first night. His humour and passion made the experience memorable. Received the USB drive the following night. We even have a photo of him laying on the ground trying to get a great picture. In addition all of the guides were helpful in explaining how to take great pictures.

We did not get the clothing package. I think the first night was -35 C (-45 with windchill) and I would recommend putting some small hotshots in front of your toes if you have cheaper boots like mine.

For the return flight we were provide a taxi voucher since we were going to airport at 4 am. Taxi service in Yellowknife was good.

Highly recommend this company and tour.

My pictures were taken with iPhone 12 on a tripod on our last night.

My boyfriend and I chose Arctic Tour Canada to explore the Northen Lights in Yellowknife.
Each activity proposed in the package has been really well organized by the company.

Also, we had the chance to go hunting the aurora with Patrick.
He is an amazing guide, very passionate and professional with always a good joke to share and lots of good stories about the auroras.
Patrick was very attentive to our needs during the tour and made sure that we always enjoyed and spent a good time.

Highly recommending Arctic Tour Canada and… Patrick !

Thanks for everything, we had an amazing experience in Yellowknife.

My aurora borealis journey in Yellowknife was a mesmerizing experience. From cozy lakeside cabins to indigenous campfire gatherings, and thrilling winter adventures like snowmobiling and ice fishing, every moment was filled with wonder and beauty. Despite the cold, the warmth of the guides and the enchanting aurora dances made it unforgettable. This dream come true taught me to embrace each moment and cherish the beauty of life. Grateful to ATC, Rebecca, and guides for their passion. Can't wait for the next journey!

Big applause to our best guides Jessica and Patrick!

My friend and I joined the 4D3N aurora tours and were lucky enough to see the northern lights for 2 consecutive nights!

Jessica is friendly and knowledgeable. She is our guide for aurora hunting and shared a lot of tips for photo-taking. She also helped me set up my camera for capturing the once-in-a-lifetime aurora moments, and of course, took some awesome photos for us.

Patrick, equally friendly and knowledgeable, is super fun! He went extra-miles to help us take great photos and videos. We enjoyed our time having him as our coach for snowmobile, guide for city sightseeing and also our last aurora viewing in cabin. Don't miss out the marshmallow roasting under wildfire. The best marshmallow we've ever tasted!

Highly recommend!
