Aurora season is coming soon to Churchill and we are getting excited for another incredible few months of spectacular northern lights viewing. Churchill, in the heart of winter, is quite the magical place. With all the population growth around beautiful places in North America it’s rare to be able to escape to a town that is surrounded with amazing natural beauty yet has very few people living there. If you’re looking for respite from the maddening crowd and need some time for reflection beneath the glimmering aurora borealis, this is the place to be. Enjoy this look down on our planet highlighted by the green halo of of mysterious northern lights.
Here are a few photo gems by Alex De Vries – Magnifico’s from this past northern lights season. Alex kept us busy here at churchillpolarbears.org with ample shots from the long aurora season in Churchill. Every Natural Habitat Adventures group was fortunate to view the most incredible northern lights displays in recent history. By any comparison this was completely successful winter season! Until next season enjoy these parting shots!
