A kingdom of snow rises from the frozen crust of Great Slave Lake. Festivals celebrating the sun’s return from its winter hiatus spring up above the Arctic Circle. Pond hockey tournaments and uncountable opportunities to relish the beauty of winter – if there is one thing Northerners love more than winter, it’s finding a reason to host a winter festival to celebrate it.
Traditions as old as the land continue to live on: games, feasts and storytelling. All the while, the Aurora Borealis dances gracefully among the stars. Winter and spring are incredible times to get the true Northern experience. These festivals are like no other.
