The Northern Lights

This phenomenon may not belong to Canada, but Canada certainly offers many great places to see the Northern Lights! My experience with the Northern Lights was in Inuvik, Northwest Territory – and that’s a place few tourists will make the effort to travel to. A shame really. I went in the dead of winter (mid-January), and had about 19 hours of opportunity every day & night to view the lights! I also did some amazing dogsledding with Judi Falsness of Arctic Chalet – her operation is the only one in the world that takes visitors out with all-white husky teams. Simply dazzling.

The dramatic cliffs that form component of the Sleeping Giant rise as high as 800 feet in Sleeping Giant Provincial Park.
