Enjoy an exceptional vantage point to see the aurora at a lakeside cabin. Our location is the perfect spot for photographers and those wanting to see nature’s spectacular light show. In the autumn you can see reflections of the aurora on the lake and, in the winter you can walk on the frozen lake and see the ice. Upon arrival at the parking area enjoy the winter scene as you walk a lit snow packed path to our aurora cabin. Our fully furnished, heated cabin will keep you warm and cozy on those cold nights, especially when enjoyed with a cup of hot chocolate and freshly prepared oven baked desert. Located approximately 25 min drive from the City of Yellowknife there will be opportunity to stop if the northern lights are seen in the sky, though as you’ll notice we start earlier in the evening to maximize viewing time. Experience personalized, award-winning customer service excellence. This tour is provided in English
