Aurora Day Trips

Auroras at night. Adventures by day.

Stay at a comfortable hotel in one of several Northwest Territories communities. Select from a range of daytime activities - from driving on an ice road to driving a dog team - completely outfitted for the great outdoors. By night, travel out of town by bus or mini bus to a single location, or one of several key viewing spots along the highway, for an awe-inspiring evening of Aurora viewing.
