These magnificent images from Alex de Vries – Magnifico with Discover Churchill are fitting to finish out the awesome northern lights season in Churchill. Another season in the books and what a season it was. Looking forward to spring and summer in Churchill with belugas, birds and maybe a few polar bears!

These awesome northern lights images from Alex de Vries-Magnifico and Discover Churchill, as well as a cool Creek Cabin shot from GWB’s Don Walkoski capture the intense aurora borealis we have seen this season in Churchill. Sad to see the season-ending for Natural Habitat Adventures travelers. We cannot wait until next season but keep in mind the northern lights can be seen year-round in Churchill. Winter is prime season though at the right times in summer and fall one can get a phenomenal experience!

These two magical images by Alex de – Vries Magnifico from Discover Churchill capture the intensity of this northern lights season in 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!
The Ithaca shipwreck under the frenetic aurora in Churchill, Manitoba. Discover Churchill photo.
Glimmering northern lights over the fringes of the boreal forest near Churchill, Manitoba.
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!
An Arctic Hare disguised in the snow surrounding the Precambrian shield. Discover Churchill photo.
Arctic Hares have an amazing camouflage of white and black-tipped ears that not only blend in with the snow and rocks but provide a unique target for raptors to focus on instead of the body flesh. Many times when attacked the hare can evade by having extra seconds to find shelter. Churchill has Arctic Hares throughout the tundra year-round!
