Over the last four years through literally dozens of weekends, sometimes weeks, and on the odd occasion, just a single night in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, I’ve discovered the most incredible passion for the extreme north, but best of all, the pure exhilaration of chasing for, and viewing the northern lights. Naturally from there, a real excitement and desire to bring that majestic experience to so many others in a truly special, intimate, and completed way was born.

The aurora, it alters very quickly... it can go so fast, you can’t imagine it; you have to... You have to see it.
— Kjetil Skogli

Under the snowy roof of a beautiful new half duplex in Yellowknife’s stunning Niven Heights will be two bedrooms of the absolute coziest, genuinely comfortable and warm accommodation available to you... Think Icelandic sheepskins, plush mattresses, thick duvets encapsulated in beautifully soft-to-the-touch white bedding, mountains of throw pillows, soft, warm lighting, and spectacular photography on the walls. Hope you’re a cuddler. A light breakfast of pastries, cereals, and fresh fruit smoothies will be at your fingertips when you awake, a little later than usual, in the morning from our night of chasing the northern lights together into the early morning hours.

THE CITY

love at -40ºC, 62ºN

Sitting directly underneath the auroral oval, combined with often long strings of clear nights through the winter months, Yellowknife is one of the best places in the world to see the lights. Ice caves, waterfalls, a jaunter through the surrounding forest, or an afternoon spent exploring Old Town's many handicraft shops, museums and great restaurants, you'll find yourself enjoying this little place that stole my heart a few years, and so many visits ago now.

There's no experience in this world like it. There aren't words to accurately describe it. But in moments of continued speechlessness watching green and purple curtains dance their dance, there is laughter. For years, every night I've seen them, and there's been a few, I've enjoyed it more than the last. And with this incredible opportunity to share the aurora with you, and so many others, it continues to become far more special for me. There's nothing better.

your coziest stay

Moving to Yellowknife to host spectacular you,  with whom I get to share the northern lights, and offer the special experience of an extraordinarily comfortable home to relax, be warm and cozy without worries in, was the most natural choice in the world for me. There's nothing I love more than that experience, and being able to bring it to you gives me the opportunity, and blessing of a lifetime.
