midnight sun. Depending on the season you

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.

Also available on request is a

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.

I have never had to cancel a reservation before and it is not something I take lightly. Family is coming to stay and it had slipped my mind.

Tessa's home has a beautiful living room where we can see lake. We can also sit by fireplace in her living room to read books and wait northern light show. She is friendly and prepare very nice breakfast for us. The most important part is that we saw northern light at lake in front of her house.

옐로나이프 가신다면 이 숙소 추천드려요! 방 안에 있는 창문 통해서 오로라도 봤어요!!! 머무는 동안 올드타운이랑 호수 쪽 돌아다녔는데 작고 아기자기하고 너무 좋았어요.(다운타운은 투어 차량 타고 지나가봤는데, 딱히 메리트를 못느끼겠더라구요. 식사는 어차피 집에서 조식먹고, 밤에 라면이나 카레해먹기도 하고 근처 유명한 식당도 있어서 가서 버팔로 스테이크랑 북쪽에서 사는 생선 먹고 그랬어요!!) 밤에 산책하며 오로라도 보고 여유있게 옐로나이프 즐기시기엔 올드타운 추천합니다=) 방도 너무 예쁘고 아기자기하고, 테사가 진짜 친절해서 정말 감사했어요 새벽 비행기로 떠나는 날도 샌드위치 미리 싸주시고, 호탕한 성격이셔서 즐겁게 대화도 나누고, 포토그래퍼셔서 옐로나이프 관련 책에 실은 사진들도 보여주시도, 너무 즐거운 기억으로 남았습니다!=) 물을 아껴써야하긴 하지만, 그런 걸 감수하더라도 머무는 내내 정말 만족스러웠습니다!

올드타운에서는 오로라투어를이용하지 않고 오로라를 보려고 한건데 tessa의 집 바로 앞에 드넓은 호수가 있어 아주아주 잘 보였습니다. 이틀 내내 꽤 좋은 오로라를 볼 수 있었어요. 블로그에서는 알 수 없었던 마을에 대한 설명과 팁들이 유용했어요. 내부인테리어도 아주 좋고 다락방도 너무 마음에 들었습니다. 아침식사도 늦게일어나도 해주시고 정말정말 맛있었어요. 요리를 아주 좋아하시는 듯 했습니다. 친절하고 이야기하는 것도 좋아하셔서 지루하지않은 오후였네요. 다음숙소 입실에 차질이 생겨 체크아웃이 예상치않게 늦어졌지만 이해해주시고 잫 챙겨주셨어요! If you are considering your staying at yellowknife, this is the best bnb in yellowknife.
