8 Days Northern Lights And Winter Nights - Enthusiast Via Rail (Land)

$4,050.00Price

Our Northern Lights and Winter Nights - Enthusiast - VIA Rail tour is led by an Interpretive Guide 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 Interpretive Guide, offers you the opportunity to witness 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 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.

 

Enthusiast Level: Our most well-rounded adventures, these tours include lodging and transportation with a mix of cultural and wildlife or northern lights viewing activities built in. Enthusiast-level tours are medium-capacity, escorted departures so you can sit back and relax while we take care of all the details.
