In the same land that hosts the brief, brilliant summer of beluga whales and the polar bears of autumn comes an amazing phenomenon that illumines the dark winter skies. The ethereal northern lights, also known as the aurora borealis, meaning “north wind of the dawn,” brighten the night sky in a mystical display of color. Churchill, Manitoba has one of the heaviest concentrations of auroral activity in the world, making it a peerless destination for a northern lights tour. On this exciting Arctic adventure our days are filled with distinctly northern activities such as dog sledding, and our nights with the potential for the best aurora viewing on the planet.
- Experience the wonder of the northern lights from the comfort of heated aurora domes in one of the most aurora-active places on Earth
- Journey from southern prairie to subarctic tundra on the Hudson Bay Railway – there's no better way to sense the magnitude of the Canadian wild
- Discover the traditions of northern First Nations peoples on an array of winter activities in and around Churchill
