Churchill Weekly Video – Aurora Season

With Churchill’s northern light season just about a month away, here’s a video clip from Natural Habitat Adventures guide Drew Hamilton in the great white north….soon to be the great “green” north! Of course, aurora borealis occurs throughout the year in the Arctic and sub – Arctic, however, January through March is the prime window for viewing, when skies are the clearest. The Hudson Bay on the Churchill shores freezes over and no moisture rises to form cloud cover or fog. This season is promising to be one of high-intensity auroral action as we are still in a cycle of heavy solar flare activity. We will be posting regularly with all the news and views from the heart of the northern lights action in Churchill!

Polar Bears Swarming Around Churchill

Churchill this year begins to resemble an outdoor zoo with the residents of the town living within the polar bear exhibit. However, this is the wilds of the sub – Arctic region where polar bears are king and people reside in their natural habitat. The warning to be extra vigilant when walking and leaving your home is real and serious. Please be careful out there all times of day but especially at night and early morning! Polar bears are extremely hungry this time of year.
