Welcome to Nature's Greatest Light Show

Lights that seem close enough to touch.

There are two Aurora seasons in the Northwest Territories – autumn when the land and lakes are still warm, and winter when the land and lakes are frozen. Tip your head back in awe to catch the glittering lights dancing across the sky. Whether you prefer rugged or pampered, Northwest Territories outfitters and lodges offer day trips and three and four day packages designed to show you the best of our spectacular Aurora.
