The most spectacular phenomenon on earth, the northern lights, will embrace you in all its majesty on this aurora borealis adventure at Blachford Lake Lodge. Awash in vibrant colors, watch as the lights dance across the starlit sky and speak to the moon in the most mystical voices.

There are plenty of activities available at the lodge. You can use the seasonal equipment for a self-guided adventure or participate in one 2-hour morning and one 2-hour afternoon guided interpretive experience per day. These guided/self-guided experiences include aurora photography tips, winter/fall hiking, wildlife tracking, ice-fishing, igloo building, kayaking/canoeing, and an introduction to cross-country skiing or snowshoeing (based on availability).

This is a sample 5 Day itinerary and can be customized to guest preferences

Day 1 Yellowknife to Blachford Lake Lodge Your journey begins with a 30 minute bush plane flight from Yellowknife to Blachford Lake Lodge (included). Spend the afternoon exploring the lodge, enjoying an activity or resting and preparing for an evening of aurora viewing. Whether from the hot tub, tipi, deck, by the bonfire or from your bed, watching the northern lights dance across the sky is a special part of your stay.

Day 2-4 Choice of Experiences The next few days in this wild Canadian paradise can be entirely tailored to you. Sleep in or wake up to the crackling of the fire and enjoy a full hot breakfast. Enjoy one guided interpretive experience included morning and afternoon which can include choice of the following: cross country skiing, snowshoeing, winter hiking, tipi and bonfires, ice fishing, net fishing, wildlife and track viewing, skating, hockey games, fat tire biking, hand salve making, dream catcher making, hot tub and sauna, igloo building, relaxing in nature, aurora viewing and photography, maple taffy on snow and kick sledding. After your day of adventure, head back to the lodge for a wonderful and hearty home cooked meal, followed by more aurora viewing.
