Welcome to Aurora Village

Aurora Village

Located within what is known as the 'Aurora Oval', Yellowknife is one of the three best places in the world to view the spectacular natural phenomenon known as the Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis (Fairbanks, Alaska and Lapland in Norway are the other two). Aurora Village, located just 30 minutes from downtown Yellowknife, is fast becoming a major tourist attraction - offering visitors from all over the world a rare opportunity to see the luminous light-show in a geographically perfect setting. Consisting largely of tepees (heated for your comfort), Aurora Village is a traditional-feeling, suitably ambient place to spend a cold winter's evening, spellbound by the incredible, colourful patterns that grace the night sky overhead. Moreover, visitors who wish to spend more than a night at Aurora Village will find plenty of interesting things to keep themselves busy with, such as snow mobile and dog-sled rides, and dream catcher-making lessons.
