Having a chance to watch the northern lights dance above you is truly a magical experience.  Some nights are a bit chilly,  but no worries, down below I have listed 3 different ways you can view the magnificent northern lights, while staying nice and warm. 

Tipi Aurora Viewing​

Aurora Viewing from a tipi is a very popular experience that guests want to have.  Watching the northern lights from a tipi brings alive some authenticity to the northern culture.  Having the tipi while Aurora Viewing lets you enjoy your night in comfort.  There is a fire inside to keep you warm, and the tipi will protect you from the wind.   Join our Aurora tour to watch the northern lights warm and comfortably, while gaining a northern experience.

Tent Aurora Viewing

At Raven Tours we offer multiple ways to enjoy Aurora Viewing, and one of them is Tent Aurora Viewing.  In the middle of the winter we setup our McPherson wall tent on the lake for guests to enjoy.  So when you want to relax, you can go into the framed wall tent enjoying a warm fire, while sipping on hot chocolate.  This an amazing way to watch the northern lights because you can see them best out on the lake as you have a 360-degree point of view.

      Hi Neville, aurora viewing with a tipi or tent are two options that guests enjoy during the winter months! During the fall season many people enjoy watching the aurora by the lake because the colours reflect off the water.

夜空的耳语   清凉冷脆的午夜天空,翠绿的霞光翩翩起舞,把过去和现在连接起来。 暮色渐渐染浸了夜空,永恒的灵魂扶摇旋转,那是先人祈盼逃离尘域。   黄昏的天空暗淡下来,白雪覆盖了绿色的高山,星空下姹紫嫣红飘散。 在这朦胧的夜色之中,渡鸦张开它黑色的翅膀,向我靠近又将我高举。   忧郁之翼翱翔于空中,这是逝去之人呼唤吾名,悄声召唤着我的灵魂。 翠绿的极光降临夜空,再次翩然起舞壮阔美丽,我的灵魂也随之而去。   静寂的月光轻闻鸣吟,斑驳不语之影弥漫萦林,茫茫白雪漫裹着大地。 我又重回温暖的怀抱,橙色火光欢快闪烁跳跃,照亮远方的苍穹之际。   寒冷黑夜中极光带绿,已逝之魂借着翔翼低语,使原本静谧的夜更寂。 无尽的召唤午夜响起,渡鸦鸣叫呼唤我的名字,让我的灵魂穿山越脊, “我会回到你的身旁,无论何时我会回到你的身旁。” Share on facebook Share on google Share on
