The big news from Churchill this season is the new Creek Cabin built by Great White Bear Tours for Natural Habitat Adventures northern lights groups fo travelers. Aurora has once again been magical as you can see from a couple of the images above. The Creek Cabin has been an amazing base to get away from the lights of the town and be in peace on the edge of the boreal forest off Goose Creek Rd. The wood stove keeps travelers warm as they step in and out of the shelter to take in one of the most spectacular phenomena on Earth! This new location adds to the experiences already provided by the Aurora Pod and Aurora Domes in other northern lights viewing sites around Churchill!

Aurora borealis action has been ramping up over the past week and we are hoping this is an indication that this will be a northern lights season to remember for all! Churchill is one of the most accessible places on Earth to see this most incredible phenomenon! Enjoy!
These majestic light pillars near Yellowknife are another jewel of the Arctic! Rare as they are, when they appear it becomes an otherworldly phenomenon. Enjoy!

These two images from Alex de Vries – magnifico and Discover Churchill are timeless and electrifying all at once. The Ithaca comes back to life as it slowly decays in the Hudson Bay up the coast from the town of Churchill. The ice and lights seem to give the forlorn ship inertia to launch itself into the frigid, glowing sky in search of Franklin and his doomed expedition.
The following aurora borealis shot in the dark is one of surprise and emergence from the boreal forest into the frozen tundra underneath the green sky of the timeless Arctic frontier. Churchill lies on the edge of a white and green world that the mind uses as a jumping-off point to dream of adventure in this world of raw nature! Enjoy!
