Day 2: Vancouver Sightseeing
Our Hop-On, Hop-Off Sightseeing Bus Pass is a fun and flexible way to see the best of Vancouver!

When we stand under the Yukon sky surrounded by mile upon mile of Yukon’s wilderness, we can’t help but think of what the ancients, our ancestors might have thought as they too stood spell bound by the Northern Lights. It’s little wonder that they believed the Northern Lights to be the spirits of the departed or the Gods themselves. Yukon is one of the best places on earth to see the northern lights – colourful bands of light that dance in the dark night sky. While the northern lights occur year-round, summer’s near-constant daylight makes seeing them next to impossible. In the autumn, winter and early spring, however, clear, dark nights lend themselves to stunning displays.
