Full description
Canada’s High North is famous for its nature, its wildlife, endless lands, and above all, the mystical Northern lights. Aurora Borealis provides an astonishing spectacle in these areas, especially during winter. This “Aurora Hunting” tour will take you to numerous vantage points, aiming for a perfect view of the polar lights. Hot tea pops and snacks will be provided for you during this 4-hour tour.

Important information
Know before you go
• If the weather conditions do not allow you to see the Northern Lights, you can switch the date of your tour to the next available Aurora Hunting tour
• Please bring your tripod if you want to get some awesome shots of the Northern lights
• Please note that while the northern lights are always in the night sky, their intensity is dependent on solar activity. Skies free from clouds are necessary to catch a perfect view of the mystical northern lights. Thus, a successful Aurora view cannot be guaranteed.
• Despite climate change, temperatures in the Canadian North can drop to -30C and colder. Choose adequate clothing (layers) and make sure to protect the uncovered parts of your body, especially your hands and face, when photographing.
• Rental gear is optionally available.
