Tour Documents / Booking

Sample Tour Itinerary

Northern Lights Booking form

Nights Under Lights Waiver form

Come and experience an unforgettable adventure in Northern Canada with Nanuk Operations award winning “Nights Under Lights” Aurora viewing tour, and cross off Northern Lights from your bucket list in the process!

Churchill, otherwise known as “The Polar Bear Capital of the World”, is situated perfectly under the Aurora Oval, giving us aurora activity over 300 days of the year. In winter, with our short days and colder temperatures, we have long nights, clearer skies and a better chance at catching the dancing sky.

Our Nights Under Lights package tour offers the best of Churchill in the winter, including evenings at our modern yurt nestled in the boreal forest under a dark sky for Aurora viewing. During the days enjoy Dog Sledding, Hikes, Presentations, Town and Area tours of Churchill and it’s famous sites and explore the town in your down time.

If you choose to come up on the train, enjoy spending two extra nights searching for Aurora from the special Dome Car, or even the window from the bed in your cabin. During the day enjoy the changing landscape as you head further and further north towards Churchill.

**we cannot guarantee aurora due to solar activity and weather being out of our control. Other tours such as hikes and dog sledding subject to weather conditions.

What you need to bring

– Warm clothing! Winter jacket, pants, good boots, neck warmer, beanie, gloves
(we suggest having thin gloves under mitts so you can remove your hands to manipulate a camera without exposing your skin)

– Extra batteries! The cold will drain your battery life, and because we are off grid and running a eco friendly power system we don’t have much options for charging on site.
Keep on top of your charging in town and make sure your devices and camera batteries are charged before coming out for the evening!

– If you have USB power banks to charge your phone and a USB charger for your camera batteries we suggest bringing these to be prepared!
