Whitehorse, Yukon - Building on last November's very successful inaugural Aurora | 360 flight, Consulta Meta I.M. Inc. is in partnership with Aurora 360, and proud to announce a 2nd flight to the Northern Lights! Scheduled to take-off on the weekend, between the 8th and the 11th of February 2019, the experience will offer 80 passengers an exclusive opportunity in North America, to fly above the clouds, and witness the Aurora Borealis closer than ever before.

To see the Northern Lights is an amazing moment in all situations, but to capture them well on camera adds exponentially to the experience. Award-winning Canadian Photographer Neil Zeller, is once again leading the photography project for the Aurora | 360. "Combine this, with capturing the Lights at 36,000 ft above the Earth, from a 737 aircraft, and now, you can have a bucket list checkmark worthy moment you'll never forget!" The experience, will include various pre and post flight activities, Yukon inspired meals, a full evening of Yukon First Nations Astronomy, dance, and culture, along with another evening in the company of four (4) very special guest speakers:

30 seats are designated Aurora | 360, which gives you:

  • a seat on the flight;
  • ground transportation, to/from a specific pick-up point, to the airport; and
  • a Signature Celebratory Gin, while on-board.

50 seats are designated Aurora | 360 Experience, including accommodations for four (4) nights (double occupancy required):

Our own local Yukon Brewing Company will be offering a Signature Gin on-board the flight. Air North, Yukon's Airline, will provide the plane, non-alcoholic drinks, and snacks during the flight. Aurora | 360 is back, and ready to show the world what the Yukon skies have to offer!
