Churchill Northern Lights Season Preview

Churchill has northern lights in their skies year – round! However, with weather conditions and long summer days, the chances to view the spectacular aurora borealis is not as optimal a good part of the year. However, once January, February and March roll around the skies become clear most nights and the greenish glow of northern lights ignite the sky and landscape around Churchill in an other-worldly manifestation of land and space.

A northern lights adventure in Churchill combines serenity and quiet with natures most phenomenal explosion of color in the endless palette of sky high above the frigid Arctic. The hustle and bustle of the polar bear season have long since dissipated and the true colors of this Hudson Bay outpost shine through both literally and figuratively. Although the polar bears have long since departed for the ice of the Hudson Bay, the ability to explore the area fearlessly, taking in the vastness of the north and reaching back in time to feel the sensation of discovery evokes feelings undiscovered.
