Northern Lights Tundra Experience

7 Nights from £4,199 Including Flights

Overview

A truly unique holiday to experience the Northern Lights on the Canadian Tundra, plus the chance to experience dog-sledding and snow-shoeing along the Hudson Bay. Unlike some parts of the world, here you’re pretty much guaranteed to see the most spectacular displays of the Northern Lights because Churchill is located directly beneath the Auroral Oval with activity occurring more than 300 nights a year. Each evening you will be transported in the warmth of a Tundra Buggy across the frozen Churchill River to the cosy Thanandelthur Lounge which is located away from the lights of the town to maximise the Northern Lights experience. Here you can view the Northern Lights through panoramic windows whilst enjoying a hot drink, and there is a roof-top observation deck for an unobstructed view.

The holiday starts with a stay in Winnipeg, where you will visit the Manitoba Museum and Planetarium, enjoying a private guided tour. Then you will fly to Churchill on the Hudson Bay, where you will discover the incredible culture this unique town and the warmth of its people.
