We'll welcome you at the airport and transfer you to the hotel in downtown Whitehorse and we will get you checked in.

March 30th, 2014
Over breakfast we will go over the itinerary over a group setting. There, we will present a slide show and give you tips on photographing in the environments that we are about to shoot in.

After lunch we will head out into rural Yukon and show you the mountain ranges, pristine lakes and make frequent stops along the way to let you enjoy the sights through your lens.

At 8.30 PM we depart for our first of many Aurora hunts. Hot drinks and snacks are provided

Breakfast and dinner included

March 31st, 2014
After lunch we will depart for Kluane National Park for landscape photographic opportunities of the Yukon Mountains and lakes. On the way we stop regularly to allow you the opportunity to take photos of the beautiful landscape. Once we reach Kluane we can go for a short hike. Dinner will be in Haines Junction. After dinner we will position ourselves for a sunset photo opportunity before we drive to our nightly Aurora viewing location.

The 22 000 square kilometre Kluane National Park is set like a jewel in the southwestern corner of the Yukon between northeastern British Columbia and the tidewaters of the Alaskan panhandle. Much of the park's 129 kilometre northern boundary is made up of the Alaska Highway and the Haines Road. The Alsek River, known for its big water rapids created by the tremendous volume of water it drains from the St. Elias Mountains, is so swift it appears that native people have entirely avoided using it for travel or trade routes.

Lunch and Dinner included

April 1st, 2014
Sleep in or a morning at your leisure and go for one of your own day trips. We will group together for lunch and spend a few hours going through your images. After an early dinner we will grab our camera gear for another night with the Aurora Borealis. Again, if the lights are dancing, we will stay out taking photos for as long as the group wants.

Sleep in because we may have been out to the wee hours of the morning shooting northern lights. After lunch we will head west for a journey down the Alaskan highway. Through the mountain ranges we will venture and make frequent stops at lakes such as Squanga lake and Little Teslin Lake as we search for the perfect mountain vista, moose and other resident wildlife.

After an early dinner we will grab our camera gear one last time for our last night with the Aurora Borealis. We will depart at 8:30pm and have you back at your hotel by 1:30am so you can get some sleep and catch one of two flights home the next day.
