Frontiers North Adventures, leaders in sustainable travel in Canada’s North, is offering three all-new ways to experience Churchill’s northern lights in 2021.

Acknowledging that every traveller is different, their Northern Lights and Winter Nights collection now features a variety of trip options to suit. Adventure travellers seeking a mix of cultural and northern lights-viewing activities will appreciate the new Enthusiast-level trips, while the Specialist-level departures are specifically tailored for those with an interest in northern lights photography.

Also brand new for 2021 is a two-night departure from Calgary to Churchill-direct, offering travellers out of Alberta the chance to experience Churchill beneath the northern lights.

The direct, return flight between Calgary and Churchill during the winter northern lights season is the first of its kind in Frontiers North’s 30-plus year history, which will make a trip to Churchill more easily accessible to visitors in the winter months.

“Churchill is a world-class tourism destination celebrated for its remoteness, but on account of being remote, that means Churchill can sometimes be difficult for guests to reach,” said John Gunter, President and CEO of Frontiers North Adventures. “Establishing this direct flight between Alberta and Manitoba during winter provides guests already in Western Canada the opportunity to easily experience in Churchill an additional iconic Canadian destination; our amazing northern lights.”

Renowned for its access to polar bears and beluga whales, Churchill is also a top destination to see the northern lights. Churchill’s proximity to the auroral oval, isolated location, low-light pollution and clear winter air make for excellent viewing conditions.

Frontiers North’s Northern Lights and Winter Nights adventures take place in February and March 2021. To book or to request more information, visit
