The Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) are spectacular to experience, but as a natural phenomena we cannot control their appearance. Cloud cover may obscure the view or the Aurora may not be active. Aurora forecasts are like Weather forecasts and may not be 100% reliable.

Weather conditions could delay charter plane departures. Yellow Dog Lodge and our air charter service provider will do our utmost to accommodate our clients, however, due to weather conditions being beyond our control, we are not responsible for additional costs incurred by guests.
