Winter adventures & the Northern Lights in magical Manitoba

Churchill, in the Canadian province of Manitoba, is one of the best places in North America to witness a display of the awe-inspiring Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights).

This exciting adventure in the snow covered setting of arctic Canada offers you a chance to experience the Northern Lights from the deck of a Tundra Buggy, a specially designed vehicle which will transport you in to the wilderness outside of Churchill (and well away from any source of artificial light) to maximise your chances of seeing the phenomenon as well as a chance to participate in a range of daytime excursions which include snowshoeing treks and a dog sledding experience.
