Group Size Limit

Small group sizes are the best way to experience nature, and this is especially true for our photographic adventures. With no more than 10 travelers, you’re assured plenty of space and personalized attention when you need it. As a small group, we maintain the flexibility to adapt to changing conditions in a way that maximizes photo opportunities. Our expert naturalist and accomplished photographer is always available to answer your questions, provide tips and techniques, and to help you better understand and photograph the amazing natural phenomenon of the aurora borealis, as well as the Arctic landscape.

Physical Requirements
Moderate / Flexible
The Northern Lights Photography Tour does not require a high degree of physical fitness. However, we will be exposed to extremely cold weather often experiencing temperatures well below freezing which in itself can be physically challenging and we may walk in deep snow. Most nights we will stay up past midnight to look for the Northern Lights and, in order to get that perfect shot, may spend extended periods of time outdoors. It is necessary to climb 10 steps up a ladder in order to access the aurora-viewing domes. Some nights we will stay up late hoping to see the lights and, in order to get that perfect shot, may spend extended periods of time outdoors. Travelers must be able to walk up/down stairs. All of our activities are optional.

Important Information About This Trip
After the hubbub of the fall polar bear season (although there is still a small chance to see bears in the winter), we journey back to Churchill during the prime season to experience one of the world’s most remarkable sights — the Northern Lights. We explore the nature and culture of the North and participate in photography workshops by day, then when night falls we’ll scan the skies for the amazing colors of the aurora borealis.  A note on the moon: we run trips when there is a full moon, a new moon and at all times in between. During a full moon the foreground is brighter, making for unique photographic images. During a new moon, the sky is darker so the lights may appear slightly brighter. However, since we are in a place where the lights are so bright anyway, this makes very little difference in the quality of viewing. Any time one sees the Northern Lights in Churchill, it is an experience to behold! Travelers should be aware that while aurora sightings are highly likely, as with all aspects of nature that are inherently unpredictable and outside our control, sightings are not guaranteed.
Getting There & Getting Home
Please plan to arrive in Winnipeg on Day 1 in time for our 7:00 pm Welcome/Orientation Dinner. You are free to depart at any time on the final day.
