This four-day, three-night package is available from September 1, 2013 to April 15, 2014 and starts at $475 per person. This travel deal offers vivid displays of the Northern Lights, combined with a comfortable and relaxing stay at Yukon’s first wellness resort.
Just a short drive south from Whitehorse on the Alaska Highway, Northern Lights Resort & Spa has lodge rooms and log chalets. This 160-acre property is ideal for viewing Aurora Borealis without light pollution.
According to NASA: “Aurora are colorful lights in the night time sky primarily appearing in Earth’s polar regions. But what causes them? The culprit behind aurora is our own Sun and the solar plasma that is ejected during a magnetic event like a flare or a coronal mass ejection. This plasma travels outward along with the solar wind and when it encounters Earth’s magnetic field, it travels down the field lines that connect at the poles. Atoms in the plasma interact with atoms in Earth’s upper atmosphere.”
You’ll love the healthy European-style breakfasts and gourmet family-style three-courses dinners. Ah, and the outdoor Jacuzzi is also an amenity to enjoy during your stay.
