NWT's Latest Canadian Signature Experiences

August 7, 2019

NWT Tourism is pleased to announce that Aurora Village and Kasba Lake Lodge have been selected by Destination Canada as two of its newest Canadian Signature Experiences.

The Canadian Signature Experience (CSE) Collection refers to purchasable “once-in-a-lifetime” experiences found only in Canada that focuses on transformational travel. Destination Canada works in partnership with all 13 Canadian provincial and territorial marketing organizations to build and maintain the collection.  NWT Tourism co-manages the application and selection of CSE members in the Northwest Territories.

Aurora Village’s “VITeepee” Dining Experience is a two-night experience like no other. It includes two nights of aurora viewing in a private teepee with heated seats, a private 3-course dinner with traditional fares that are locally sourced, daytime winter activities to see the beauty of the area, private transfers and much more.

Kasba Lake Lodge's visitors can experience an outstanding 5-day fly-fishing adventure on the World Heritage Kazan River. Fish for lake trout and arctic grayling, feast on locally grown produce, and keep the camera poised for grizzlies, moose, wolves and incredible bird life. After hours of satisfying sport fishing, guests will return to Kasba Lodge for a sumptuous gourmet dinner in our dining room. As the midnight sun dips low on the horizon enjoy a game with friends, a cocktail from the bar and the local flavor of some of our resident acoustic musicians. Gaze out on the lake, watch the last of the boats come in, and let yourself dream of the next day's fishing.

NWT Tourism would like to congratulate Robert Hill and his team at Kasba Lake Lodge, and Mike Morin and his team at Aurora Village for this achievement and national recognition. We are thrilled to see two more Canadian Signature Experiences from the Northwest Territories added into Destination Canada's national collection.
