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!
The first train to rumble into Churchill in over a year and a half made it through the snow and across Goose Creek Road and to the depot in this video. A frenetic crowd of happy Churchillians greeted the crew at the station! Congratulations to all the north and Churchill in particular. Thank you Arctic Gateway!
Three more cool northern lights photos from Alex De Vries Magnifico in Churchill. The Aurora Domes shot is a great view of the aurora above the domes from a low ground level angle. With the temperatures well below freezing, the comfort of the domes has been invaluable. With two dome shaped plexi-glass viewing areas. a comfortable lounge area and space outside to capture epic images, the Aurora Domes are unmatched when viewing the northern lights.

Wapusk Adventures compound up on Joe Buck’s Ridge off goose Creek Road requires a bit more courage when braving the frigid cold these past couple of weeks. A fire – warmed tee pee provides an amazing prop for this nearly perfected image with the northern lights in the sky. Another shot inside the tee pee gives a feel for what it’s like to live and survive in the age old shelter. Natural Habitat Adventures travelers have been awed by the experience on the dog sleds as well as the rustic feel around the compound.
