With its northern provinces extending deep into the Arctic Circle, Canada offers some fantastic locations to see the northern lights in some of the world’s great wildernesses. Combined with a host of thrilling winter activities and picturesque snow-covered scenery, Canada is a northern lights holiday destination that’s hard to beat.
By day, enjoy a variety of outdoor activities in the wild Yukon, Northwest Territories or northern Alberta from a scenic sleigh ride to thrilling dog sledding and snowmobiling. As darkness falls, turn your attention to the skies and you may be rewarded with a mesmerising light display overhead.
Northern Alberta’s Fort McMurray is renowned for reliable northern lights activity, claiming more clear nights than any other aurora-watching destination in Canada. There is over a 90% chance of seeing aurora activity from a night sky viewing centre where local astronomy experts are on hand to answer questions and share photography tips. Combine a 3-night stay here with an independent tour through the spectacular Rockies for a memorable holiday.
The highlight of the trip had to be the Northern Lights. We had clear nights throughout our stay in Fort McMurray, and did see the lights reasonably well each of the 3 nights but were very lucky indeed with a superb "show" on the last night. David Cottrell, Northern Lights & Winter Rockies
Enjoy an action-packed adventure in the Yukon, staying in Whitehorse, an ideal base from which to venture out into the wilderness. Alternatively, the little-visited Northwest Territories is home to Blachford Lake Lodge, accessible by floatplane only, where you can view the aurora from the comfort of the lodge, or better still, take adavantage of the outdoor hot tub!
