Canada’s High North is famous for its nature, its wildlife, endless lands and above all, the mystical Northern lights. Aurora Borealis provides an astonishing spectacle in these areas, especially during winter. Our “Aurora Hunting” tour will take you to numerous vantage points, ensuring a perfect view towards the polar lights. Hot tea pops and snacks will be provided for you during this four-hour tour. If desired, we are happy to give you an introduction to Aurora photography and its beautiful subtleties so that you can take some unforgettable memories of your encounter with the northern lights. (tripod required)
We will pick you up from your hotel at 10 p.m., leaving the city’s light polluted sky behind us and heading towards the northern lights. To ensure the best chances of gazing at Aurora Borealis, we will not travel to one pre-determined location but instead visit several different vantage points. We will drive you back to your hotel at around 2 a.m.
While the northern lights are always in the night sky, their intensity is dependent on solar activity. Skies free from clouds are necessary to catch a perfect view of the mystical northern lights. We strive to ensure our customers have the best possible experiences, but unfortunately, have no power over the weather. Thus, we cannot always guarantee a successful Aurora Hunting mission. Despite climate change, temperatures in the Canadian North can drop to -30C and colder. Choose adequate clothing (layers) and make sure to protect the uncovered parts of your body, especially your hands and face, when photographing.
