Northern Lights & Arctic Cultures
A Winter Adventure in Churchill, Canada – One of the World's Best Places 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 sky in a mystical display of color. Churchill, Manitoba has one of the heaviest concentrations of auroral activity on Earth, making it an ideal destination for a northern lights tour. New for 2015, view the lights from our custom-built Aurora Pod®, offering 360-degree views on the night sky in warmth and comfort via its geometric glass top and sides and reclining seats. 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.
- Experience the northern lights in comfort from heated circular aurora domes and the world famous Tundra Lodge
- Journey from southern prairie to subarctic tundra on the Hudson Bay Railway – there's no better way to sense the magnitude of the Canadian wild (or, choose a direct flight option if you prefer)
- Discover local lifestyles and traditions of northern First Nations peoples on an array of winter activities in and around Churchill
