Northern Lights & Arctic Cultures
A Winter Adventure in the Canadian North – The Best Place on Earth to See the Aurora Borealis
In the same land that hosts the brief, brilliant summer of beluga whales and the polar bears of autumn, comes an amazing phenomenon that illumines the dark winter skies. The ethereal northern lights, also known as the aurora borealis, meaning “north wind of the dawn,” brighten the night in a mystical display of color. Churchill has one of the heaviest concentrations of aurora borealis activity in the world, making it a peerless destination for a northern lights tour. On this exciting Arctic adventure our days are filled with distinctly northern activities such as dog sledding, and our nights with the potential for the best aurora viewing on the planet.
