A Closer Look at Natural Habitat's Aurora Pod

Location
Churchill, Manitoba, Canada

Natural Habitat Adventures has always been a trail blazer in creating ways to expand and enhance travelers’ experiences and comfort. The Aurora Pod—one of our newest innovations in guest access and luxury—is no exception. Our exclusive, one-of-a-kind Aurora Pod is custom-designed to provide 360-degree panoramic views of the northern lights in complete comfort.

Its exclusive geometric construction features a glass roof and glass sides from waist-height up. A heated interior and cushioned seats offer guests a warm and comfortable vantage point on the night sky.



“It’s like being inside a toasty greenhouse in the Arctic,” says Ben Bressler, founder and president of Nat Hab. “It’s perfect for unobstructed viewing while staying cozy and warm.”

And, of course, the Aurora Pod is located well outside town on the edge of the vast expanse of the tundra, away from any residual light to distract from the intensity of the auroral display.

Churchill is located directly beneath the Van Allen Belt, a layer of energy-charged particles that wraps the polar regions and is held in place by the Earth’s magnetic field, creating one of the heaviest concentrations of auroral activity in the world.

Churchill is one of the best places on Earth to see the Northern Lights, and our Aurora Pod makes that wondrous experience even more exhilarating. When the northern lights are dancing, you'll find no better way to watch the heavenly drama on display!
