3 Days / 2 Nights
Fort McMurray to Fort McMurray
From USD$629 per person
View map

Alberta is home to some of the world’s largest dark sky preserves, that means there’s no artificial light around to obscure the natural phenomenon and beauty of the northern lights! Discover and photograph the dancing lights of Aurora Borealis on a 3-day tour that includes accommodation, transfers and snow shoeing. An onsite professional photographer will help you learn to photograph the night sky. Optional excursions are available - we can arrange based on your interests.
