Each winter, the dark skies over Churchill, Manitoba come alive in an ethereal display of motion and color. This is the aurora borealis — the fabled northern lights — that swirl and dance overhead, animated by particles spawned by solar flares that become trapped in the earth’s magnetic field. Join Nat Hab Expedition Leader Court Whelan to learn about why Churchill is one of the best places on the planet to see the northern lights at their most vibrant. You'll also learn about why coming to Churchill with Nat Hab offers the best context in which to view the lights: our custom-built Aurora Pod® offers 360-degree views on the night sky in warmth and comfort through its glass top and sides, with deluxe cushioned seating. If you’re looking to capture impressive photographs of the northern lights, there's no place better than Churchill to maximize your chances!
