10 Days Northern Lights And Winter Nights by Rail - Specialist (Land)
Our Northern Lights and Winter Nights - Specialist - VIA Rail tour is led by a Photo Specialist and includes a two-night train journey that winds through Manitoba and Saskatchewan to Churchill; a town only accessible by train or plane.
Churchill is located directly beneath the auroral oval, making this northern town one of the best places on Earth to witness the awe-inspiring northern lights.
This adventure, led by an experienced Photo Specialist, offers you the opportunity to capture this incredible night-sky phenomenon from the tundra. Surround yourself in beautiful northern landscapes as we travel to a new and secluded location each night for incredible aurora-viewing and photography opportunities!
By day, you’ll experience the history and culture of this unique northern community with a snowshoeing adventure, an exhilarating dog sled ride through the boreal forest, a tour of the local Itsanitaq Museum and more!
This adventure includes an evening at Dan’s Diner, an exclusive culinary experience on the frozen banks of the Churchill River.
This adventure also includes many northern light photo opportunities. Your Photo Specialist can assist you with some camera settings.
Specialist Level: Our most exclusive tour offerings, these all-inclusive adventures are best-suited to those who want to maximize their time northern lights- or wildlife-viewing to capture the perfect image. Specialist-level tours have a smaller capacity and a longer duration, are led by a Photo Specialist guide and, if applicable, forgo most cultural components in favour of more time spent with wildlife.
