Aurora Village Summer / Fall
First night Auora Viewing
Aurora Village is the best place to experience the beauty & wonder of the Aurora Borealis. Join us in our picturesque Teepee Village & watch the Aurora dance in the sky across the wilderness of the Northwest Territories. In addition you can add extra nights at a discount to increase your chance to see Aurora.
The Aurora Viewing Tour begins with a journey along the ‘Aurora Hunting’ Ingraham trail to Aurora Village. We escape the crowds and tour buses to our world-class facility for Aurora viewing. After we arrive at the Village we follow along the dim lantern lit paths to our Teepee for the evening. Wood Fires burning upon arrival, we welcome the warmth of our Teepees.
Following a brief orientation, you can walk around our spacious property to find your perfect aurora viewing location using the Teepee as a base. The Village is sheltered from the subarctic wind by a beautiful forest – with groomed trails leading up to surrounding panorama hills for a secluded and clear viewing of the stunning display from mother nature. Guests will be wowed by the Aurora Borealis dancing overhead and we have everything they need to enjoy the experience… And don’t worry, we have very warm, spacious, and well-lit washrooms for maximum comfort!
