Northern Lights Vacations in Canada

The nighttime display of phosphorescent green, yellow and pink lights that shimmer like stardust across northern skies have entranced travellers for centuries. This spectacle is the Northern Lights, and Canada is one of the planet’s top places to see them, with optimal viewing between November and March.

Our Aurora Borealis tours take you to the best places to see the Northern Lights in Canada and include winter adventures to keep you busy once the sun rises, from dogsledding to snowshoeing.

The team at Fresh Tracks can help you customize your Canadian Northern Lights Tour.

YUKON TERRITORY

Sit in the quiet of the Yukon wilderness and get photography tips to capture the Northern Lights as they dance overhead. By day, explore Whitehorse, or go full Canadian by drilling a hole in the ice to fish, or zooming across the same frozen lake on a snowmobile. Then relax in a natural hot springs.

CHURCHILL, MANITOBA

CHURCHILL, MANITOBA

Head to Hudson Bay to chase the Aurora Borealis across the night sky after a day spent snowshoeing on the frozen tundra near Churchill, Manitoba. These tours are all about the Northern Lights — you can even sleep in a giant tundra buggy to see them far from any light pollution — but there’s a chance to see polar bears, too, if you visit in November.
