We stayed at Sundog for 5 nights in the Wolf Den cabin. The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We pre-ordered the meals from the retreat and they were delicious, home cooked meals that went down after big...More
We took four children between the ages of 1 and 11 up for three nights and two days of Yukon exploration.
As it was the end of a three week trip, we chilled in the fireweed cabin for most of the time, which was lovely,...More

Hi Dee – thanks for taking time to share your experience here. It was great to spend time with your whole family and I’m glad your kids enjoyed building the quinzhee. I know you appreciated the local Tlingit culture too!

First trip in Winter to the Yukon, with goals of seeing the Northern Lights, wildlife and breathing in the (cold) fresh air. Airport pickup was seamless. They took us to pick up groceries on the way to the property since we pre-ordered only about half...More
We stayed at Sundog for 4 nights between the wolf den and fireweed cabins and both were very clean and well equipped. I think the cranberry has the best location for aurora watching, the rest you likely need to step outside to check on the...More
Being that it was our first time in Whitehorse, getting to Sundog Retreat and driving at night took some doing, but after the first trip, it was all easy than.
Heather and Andrew are the owners and upon our arrival, the cabin was all ready...More
No it's too early. October around new moon time and then Mid February to early April. Always plan for new moon as this is when the sky is darkest and the lights are at their best. November, December and January bad weather... More

I believe for December there's only about 5 hours of daylight so keep that in mind. At Sundog since you can be in the comfort of your cabin while you wait and look for the Northern Lights it's great. I was told to look for stars first then if the sky is clear there's a good chance to see it. There's also a rating for each night if you can see it. I went in March near end of the season but lucky enough to see it all 3 nights I was there. You need to be patient, you never know what time it will be visible. It can be 15 minutes or an hour or more. Hope you're able to experience it!
