Northern Lights - Churchill, Canada travel blog

Aurora Lounge

Argh! Snow, wind, clouds - no stars, no aurora. The aurora app showed a strong aurora right above us but the clouds were so low that we couldn’t see anything. The aurora actually occurs about 50 miles up so you need a clear night to see the display. Forecast looks better for tonight and tomorrow night so at least we have two more opportunities to view the aurora. Today we went snowshoeing about 1.7 miles through absolutely pristine boreal forest. Four of us and an armed guide climbed a small hill where we had a beautiful view of both the Churchill River and Hudson Bay. The photo above is our Aurora Lounge with Tundra Buggies docked at both ends taken about 1 a.m. while we waited for the aurora that never appeared.
