Air North debuts Northern Lights experience at 36,000 feet

Tourism Yukon, Air North, Yukon's Airline and the Yukon Astronomical Society have announced a new partnership to view the Northern Lights from 36,000 feet in the air.

The partnership will provide flight-goers this once-in-a-lifetime experience to see the Northern Lights by private-chartered flight – the first of its kind in Canada – that will soar within the auroral oval for eye-level Northern Lights viewing.

The group will offer one chartered flight from Whitehorse, which will take place on either Nov. 24 or 25 pending the aurora forecast with three flexible and convenient packages to choose from, pairing one of the world's most incredible natural phenomena with Yukon's most exciting and authentic activities.

Pre-flight welcome reception and entertainment will take place at the Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre in Whitehorse, Yukon. Pending final flight route, each participant will receive a certificate from the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, stating that they have crossed the Arctic Circle. The partners are proud to offer three flight packages available for interested attendees:

  • Aurora flight only for approximately $950 CAD
  • Whitehorse aurora experience: Includes aurora flight experience, three nights' hotel in Whitehorse starting from $1,200 CAD
  • Western/Eastern Canada experience: Includes flight transportation to Whitehorse, aurora flight experience and three nights' hotel starting at $1,635 CAD

Tickets will be available for purchase starting Sept. 18.
