Travel Manitoba recently released new videos promoting tourism to the province. This northern lights footage comes from Churchill and even features Natural Habitat Adventures’ Aurora Pod. It’s not too early to start thinking about a trip to Churchill next January, February or March to see the incredible northern lights and the magical frontier town on the Hudson Bay shores. The adventure is waiting for you!
This time-lapse view from inside the Aurora Pod in Churchill was filmed by Natural Habitat guide Justin Gibson…pre – blizzard of course. Once the snow and wind stops we hope to see more amazing footage and photos from the site of the pod out on the Hudson Bay coast. With one of the most emphatic blizzards ever to hit Churchill still happening, the magical aurora borealis have obviously been obscured for the past few nights. This unique viewing and warming structure allows photographers to be on – site in an area that is remote and situated perfectly for prime northern lights activity. Stay tuned for when the snow stops and the lights come out again!
Natural Habitat Adventures guide Justin Gibson recorded this self – portrait inside Nat Hab’s Aurora Pod in Churchill. the double – exposure is haunting and magical at once. Make’s you wonder what it would be like to have two of each guide…
Here are some more photos from Natural Habitat Adventures guides in Churchill from recent groups during this northern lights season. Dog sledding has been amazing and the new warmer Aurora Pod has been a huge success with avid photographers. The aurora borealis is taking a little longer to get going full – on this season though the ones that have appeared have been sensational. We look forward to getting more updates to you with incredible northern lights soon! Enjoy!
After last year’s cold temperatures in the heart of northern lights season permeated the Aurora Pod, Great White Bear Tours and Natural Habitat Adventures collaborated to install a new heater to supplement the ambient pellet stove. The new diesel heater is the same one found on all of Great White Bear’s polar rovers and should allow for a quite comfortable experience even in the deepest cold of winter. Can’t wait to see how it performs while the fantastic aurora borealis glimmers above by the Hudson Bay coast!
