Churchill's Legendary Northern Lights
Winter adventures in search of the northern lights are becoming ever more popular — and our Northern Lights & Arctic Cultures expedition to Churchill, Canada, offers aurora watching in one of the best places on Earth to witness this evocative phenomenon. Join us for a webinar on what to expect on a Nat Hab aurora quest, hosted by Expedition Leader Court Whelan. Court’s an ace at explaining how and why this wondrous display of light and color occurs, and why Churchill is a prime place to observe it. He’ll illustrate his talk with images that will enthrall you, plus tips for getting the incredible aurora photos everyone covets. Get the specifics on our itineraries – both the ‘regular’ trip and our specialized photography tour — that show you exactly why Nat Hab offers a peerless way to experience the northern lights. See our custom-built Aurora Pod, which offers a 360-degree view of the night sky in heated warmth through its glass top and sides, from the comfort of cushioned seats—exclusively for Nat Hab travelers. And learn about activities that offer insight into the local lifestyles and traditions of Churchill’s rugged residents—including a dog sled ride included for all guests.
This Churchill northern lights video is the next best thing to being there! The aurora time-lapse was shot by NHA guide Brad Josephs, who stayed out all night and withstood temperatures of -27F (and a bit of frostbite on his nose!) to bring us this gorgeous footage.
