Viewing the Aurora Borealis—or the Northern Lights, as they’re sometimes called—is a bucket-list mainstay for travellers of all stripes. Where better to tick that box than in Whitehorse, one of Canada’s awesome cultural cities of the North? This day trip from the Yukon capital runs each winter from August until March, and includes a pick-up and drop-off from all downtown hotels, hostels and B&Bs.
