Looking for Northern Lights that set the night sky on fire? Then the Northwest Territories is the place you want to be.
Nearly every evening of the year, thousands of light-chasing visitors and residents get geared up and head out to enjoy the ever-changing Aurora Borealis show.
Thanks to our ideal location under the Auroral oval, we’re the global epicentre of Aurora-watching. If you can see the stars in our night sky, there’s a better than 99% chance you’ll see the Aurora.
Want to join the action? Head out to one of these stellar viewing spots.
For some quiet contemplation of the Aurora, take a short ski-plane trip to Blachford Lake Lodge. Enjoy the pristine wilderness and see the star-filled sky from the comfort of your room.
Blachford's outdoor hot tub offers luxurious Aurora viewing even on the coldest nights.
