Aurora and Winter

The Aurora Borealis is one of the world’s great natural wonders, and one of the best places to see the Northern Lights is the Northwest Territories.  We are located directly under the auroral oval, and the night sky in late autumn and winter can dazzle viewers with magical lightshows. Our winter packages often include dogsled rides, relaxing in a hot tub under the stars, daytime snowmobiling and ice-fishing, or unique cross-cultural experiences.
