Aurora Viewing Experience

Offer Date: 
2018-11-30

The Aurora Viewing Tour begins with a journey along the 'Aurora Hunting' Ingraham trail to Aurora Village. We escape the crowds and tour buses to our world-class facility for Aurora viewing. After we arrive at the Village we follow along the dim lantern lit paths to our Teepee for the evening. Woodfires burning upon arrival, we welcome the warmth of our Teepees from the (sometimes extreme) cold. This gives us a sheltered place to enjoy the evening when the Aurora is not on display and to warm up with hot chocolate, coffee and tea.

After a brief orientation, you can walk around our spacious property to find your perfect aurora viewing location using the Teepee as a base. The Village is sheltered from the subarctic wind by a beautiful forest - with groomed trails leading up to surrounding panorama hills for a secluded and clear viewing of the stunning display from mother nature. Guests will be wowed by the Aurora Borealis dancing overhead and we have everything they need to enjoy the experience... 

If you want that extra comfort you can upgrade to our custom built heated seats. Cosy up inside these specially designed seats with 360° swivel - giving views from all angles to enjoy the show. There is a photographer on hand in our Village Gift Shop where we provide tips and tricks for the perfect Aurora photo. If you bring your own camera we also rent tripods. The Gift Shop is stocked with locally harvested goods, crafts, syrups, teas, art and souvenirs we also have an incredible range of Aurora Photography for you to choose from and take home. And don’t worry, we have very warm, spacious, and well-lit washrooms for maximum comfort! 

Enjoy our late night A-La-Carte menu while warming up in the Aurora Village restaurant. Fresh meals are prepared in-house upon request. Our Chef focuses on northern comfort food with a local twist. Popular choices such as Mac n Cheese with smoked Arctic char or Bannock crusted White Fish Tacos are hard to pass up. Try the Canadian signature Poutine, with Duck leg confit or homestyle Buffalo Spaghetti. For the really cold nights, northern fish chowder or Bison stew are enjoyed with local fresh baked Bannock (traditional bread). Also be sure to try our Bison/Buffalo Gyzoa dumplings! Please feel free to ask about allergies or vegetarian/vegan options we cater to all requests.
