whitehorse, part four.

Another great thing about staying at the Northern Lights Resort & Spa was be able to stay there for a bit after we had checked out because our flight was later in the day. This gave us the opportunity to explore more of the 6 acres of land and to take our time with everything.

After our final delicious breakfast, we decided to go on a walk out to the viewing site that is rented out to Northern Lights viewing groups. It was snowing and it was just so beautiful. To experience nature in such a way, there really aren’t any words to describe it. The viewing site is very touristic, with a teepee and snow carving, as well as a couple of yurts. No one was there when we walked over so we had free reign to go inside the teepee and pose with the snow carving.

We walked back to the resort and lunched on our last meal put together by Renate. We thanked Wolfgang for his hospitality and off we went with Renate to the airport. After some hugs and more thank yous, we were off. Of course our flight was delayed multiple times, but we finally hopped on a plane and made i back to Vancouver by midnight. 

All in all, Whitehorse was a fantastic trip and it turned out to be much more than I expected. It’s a city that wasn’t on my travel radar and I’m sure it isn’t on many of your radars either, but I highly recommend giving this Canadian city a visit! Whitehorse is the perfect getaway from city life and it’s a great place to visit if you love the outdoors. There is so much natural beauty to see and experience! 

That’s it for my Whitehorse posts! Apologies on the delay of this one. I’ve been busy with wrapping up my last class of my undergrad (!!!) so that’s been a priority. My next trip is booked, so be sure to keep a look out for those posts in June! x
