Churchill Northern Lights Adventure

Priced from $5,349CAD   Days: from 8 

NOTE: This is not a polar bear adventure--the bears have already left the area to go to the ice to hunt seals. The trip is dedicated to northern lights and winter activities, such as dogsledding, snowshoeing and some trips off dinner under the lights at the fort. It is is mid-winter in Feb./March. 

Looking up into the night sky and seeing dancing lights of brillant greens, reds, blues and purples can be a very surreal, awe - inspiring experience. Those lights are called Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights and Churchill, Manitoba happens to be located direclty beneath the Auroral Oval where northern light activity can occur over 300 nights of the year.   Join this awe-inspiring adventure from a Tundra Buggy to capture this incredible phenomenon in Churchill from February to March 2018.
