swim, canoe, kayak or fish! Supplemental
winter clothing can be provided with advance notice.

Yellowknife is one of the best places on the whole planet and definitely the best place in Canada to see Nature's spectacular phenomena called the "Aurora Borealis / Northern Lights". It occurs all winter long, from mid-December to mid-April and again during the warmer fall season from mid-August to mid-October. the exciting polar phenomena known as the "Midnight Sun", with continuous daylight throughout the summer - May, June and July.

We find that folks often prefer to stay at our
B&B whether it be for business or holidays.
Not only is the price right, but the
atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. It’s a great
way to really meet the north - with people who
have lived here for over 30 years! We have the
pleasure of being in the hospitality business for
20 years . We welcome you and hope you will
feel comfortable and at home.

Northern Lights/ Aurora Watch:

Book a tour online with NorthStar, Yellowknife Outdoor, B Dene Adventures + others. Tours tend to take guests out of town and guide them them for the peek aurora times. However it is still possible to see the aurora before and after the tour times. 

Otherwise: Check (URL HIDDEN) to see aurora + weather forecasts . The nightly aurora re-play can give you a good idea of what you might expect. You need both good aurora + weather to see the aurora.

It needs to be clear and dark to see aurora. October, November, December are often the cloudy months in Yellowknife 
Summer is not aurora time as there are  24 hours of daylight
You need to have some clear sky as aurora is above the clouds
Aurora season is best from August to mid October
And again from mid-December to mid-April

Be prepared to stay up all night + sleep much of the day
You will be on the night shift !Our special aurora breakfast is at 11am for your sleeping convenience. The longest night is Dec 21 during winter equinox - 6pm- 7am. Whereas the shortest nights in April + August are about 9pm- 5am . 

Aurora is an unpredictable, natural phenomena. It can  last one minute or a few hours - It can be very faint or quite bright
 
You are advised to look out the windows of the house every 10 minutes. Better yet, take walks outside around the neighbourhood then come back + warm up. It is better to walk and stay warmer than to stand still for too long and get cold
Bring your warmest gear - long underwear, woolen or feather down clothing. Sometimes we can provide some warmer clothing for a very minimal fee - Parka, pants, boots, mitts, hat, neck warmer.

Some of the literature states that the full-moon is not a good time to see aurora. But then there are other people who disagree with this - thats me ! Online you will see good photos of aurora with the full moon in the picture.

The aurora is usually not quite as colourful as the photos you see. Photos are more sensitive to colour than the human eye and can be enhanced

Just an example of how difficult it might be to see aurora:
 Once a guy came for 5 nights and every night was completely cloudy. Except for 15 minutes the final night when the clouds opened up and luckily there was aurora in the sky at that time
He was watching all night long  so his diligence paid off !
So good luck to you.

외국인 b&b 인데 신기하게도 3팀 모두 한국인이 묵었어요. 덕분에 아침먹으면서 수다의장이 펼쳐졌어요. 테사가 매일 해주는 아침도 맛있고 친절하게 정보도 많이 알려주고 좋습니다. 저녁먹는데 오로라가 뜬걸 남편분이 알려주셔서 집 앞 호수에서 신나게 사진 찍고 놀았습니다. 오로라 투어 필요없고 오로라 보기에 최적의 집입니다. 새벽 비행기라 일찍 나가는데 아침도 싸줘서 감동했어요 ̊̊

Tessa is a really nice host that prepared very delicious and sincere breakfast every morning, she spent time on introducing the old town, city center, Aurora etc everything to every guests. Though the old town a little bit far away from city center, it’s atmosphere is really good.

Tessa is very personable and accommodating. Her home is very homely and in a beautiful quiet location in Yellowknife. She went to a lot of effort to leave out a takeaway breakfast on the morning we had to leave for the airport at 4am.

오로라 헌팅을 다녀와서 숙소로 돌아왔을때 방 창문을 통해서 또는 테사 발코니를 통해서 오로라를 다시한번 볼 수 있습니다. 복층으로 된 구조의 안락한 침실이였고 짐을 놓을 충분할 공간이 있으며 테사의 아침은 맛있습니다. 다운타운까지 택시로는 10분정도 소요되며 걸어서는 30 - 40분 소요됩니다 근처에 유명한 레스토랑도 있으니 꼭 한번은 다시한번 방문하고 싶습니다 친절한 호스트에게 감사합니다. Thanks tessa

However, while i travled and met many good people, i realized that meeting good person is the best way to see the Aurora. Among the people, Tessa was really good person to our trip. I can't forget tessa's last breakfast. Thank you :)

Our four day stay in Yellowknife was terrific. Sitting out on the deck, overlooking the lake, in the evening watching the sun set was special. We will have to return to see the Northern Lights that we missed.
