We booked with Northern Tales Travel Services and were not disappointed. We booked for 4 nights and had a good showing on one night and an excellent showing on one night. The staff found other things for us to do on the nights of no showing such as making homemade maple toffee in the snow, and playing and photographing lights... More

Northern Tales organised everything so well...guides and staff were responsive and knowledgeable. We were looking for an ‘extreme adventure’ and dog sledding at -37C and snowmobiling at -25C certainly fit that bill! We had a great Aurora viewing on night two and found the wildlife preserve tour particularly enjoyable.

I went in November 2016 and was really impressed with the friendliness of the staff. They picked us up from the appropriate hotel, showed us how to set our cameras and provided stories and tip. They also talked to you in a way that was nice and personable. I would take the tour again to see the Northern Lights. (We... More

We had an awesome time. We loved all the activities that we booked with Northern Tales (day tour of whitehorse, wildlife reserve, hot springs and dog sledding). The highlight of course is the Northern Lights. The staff are amazing. They are very knowledgeable and very helpful and accommodating to other travellers with regard their camera setting. And they took excellent... More

It really brought us to a place where we could see the northern lights. Staffs were very nice to take pics for you and help with the camera settings. We were lucky to see the lights. The company is highly recommended. They are really great~

Everything was great in our trip to Whitehorse. The tours we chose were amazing (snowmobiling over a frozen lake, swimming in hot springs, the wildlife reserve as well as dog sledding) and all the staff from Northern Tales was of great help (specially Erika, Anila, Bernie and Atsushi as well as Mark from the snowmobiling tour who was very, very...

I did two aurora tours while up in the Yukon, and the first was with another company. The second night i went with Northern Tales and their tour guides were so friendly, and their cabin was so warm and cosy that it felt completely different from the cold and slightly miserable night the night before. While we were waiting the... More

My family and I had booked a three night basic aurora viewing package, guided by the Northern Tales Office. The Northern Tales office is extremely well-organized; my family and I were impressed, and had a great time. The office was extremely helpful in the booking process, and prompt in replying to emails. However, all reservations are made only via email,... More

I was blown away by Northern Tales. Right from my first approach - every single staff member I encountered was exceptionally personable, warm, friendly, knowledgeable and happy to help in any way possible. They were patient with my many requests and always answered immediately, even when I was on the tour. I couldn't believe how organized everything was from the... More
