Group Size
Limited to ~12 Travelers
Smaller groups are the best context in which to experience nature, and this is especially true for our photographic adventures. With no more than 14 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 Expedition Leader, an 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 and wildlife.

Physical Requirements
Moderate
The Northern Lights & Arctic Cultures adventure 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. We may also have to walk in deep snow. Most nights we will stay up past midnight to look for the northern lights, which typically appear later in the evening. It is necessary to climb 10 steps up a ladder in order to access the upper level of the aurora-viewing domes. Travelers must be able to walk up and down stairs. All of our activities are optional.
Important Information About This Trip
This adventure takes place in Churchill during the prime season to experience one of the natural realm's most wondrous sights—the northern lights. On a full itinerary, we discover the nature and culture of the Canadian North by day, then, once night falls, we scan the skies for the undulating colors of the aurora borealis. However, please join this trip knowing that while Churchill is a consistent spot for the planet's best aurora viewing, we are never guaranteed to see it, and on some departures, we may not. It's impossible to predict, though our odds are very good, given the frequency and intensity of auroral activity over Churchill and unique geographic factors that minimize cloudy nights.

Note regarding the moon: We run trips when there is a full moon, a new moon and at all times in between. In many instances, during a full moon the foreground is brighter, making for interesting 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 tend to be so bright anyway, the phase of the moon makes very little difference in the quality of viewing.

Mandatory Insurance
Since the areas you will travel to on this trip are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we require medical evacuation insurance for this program. If you decline the medical evacuation insurance coverage offered by Natural Habitat Adventures, we require that you send us documentation of the independent coverage you have selected. We recommend that your chosen independent insurance plan includes at least $250,000 in medical evacuation coverage. Please note that we will add the cost of Natural Habitat Adventures' medical evacuation policy (currently $48 per person) to your tour invoice until you provide our office with proof of coverage including your insurance company's name, phone number and your individual policy number. Thank you for understanding that our policy exists exclusively in the interest of our guests' safety.

To protect your investment and to provide peace of mind while you travel, we also strongly recommend purchasing comprehensive travel insurance. Plans may cover everything from medical treatment to trip cancellations and delays and lost luggage. Please contact our office if you would like more information about the medical evacuation and comprehensive travel insurance policies we offer by calling 800-543-8917.
Getting There & Getting Home
In case of flight or weather delays, we recommend that you arrive a day early. Please schedule your flights to arrive by 5 pm in order to attend a 7 pm orientation dinner on Day 1 of your program. You are free to depart at any time on the final day.
