I found that you have Yellowknift tour till end of April. As I can only arrive on 28 April. Just see if there are still high chance to see the Aurora?
K.Lam 03/06/2017 16:12:46
Dear K. Lam,
Thank you for your interest with Tours4Fun.
As a naturally occurring phenomenon, the appearance of the Northern Lights is notoriously difficult to predict any further in advance than about two hours before it happens.
To see the Northern Lights you need dark skies and from early-April until late-August.
There is still a very good chance to see the Aurora on the last week of April but it is not guaranteed.
For April 28th, 2017 we still have availability and recommend booking as soon as possible to reserve your seats.
To place your order, please simply select your start date and the number of rooms/ seats you require on the upper right hand section of the tour's information page, then click “Book Now".
