Aurora viewing in Canada is not a new thing, but the township of Yellowknife in The Northwest Territories is still a new destination to Aussies and Kiwis searching for the best locations around the world to view natures greatest lightshow.
Yellowknife is the world’s Northern Lights mecca. Here the Northern Lights dance on average 240 nights per year, as the township is blessed with subarctic crystal-clear nights, ultra-low humidity and the perfect location beneath the Earth’s band of maximal Aurora activity – the “Auroral oval”.
Moving into the spotlight of aurora destination awareness, Northwest Territories Tourism has launched a new Yellowknife aurora educational flier for travel advisors to learn more about planning for the ultimate aurora experience in Canada.
