Our Latitude of Canada’s 60th Parallel borders the Northwest Territories and offers incredible opportunities to see the magical lights on display.

This region has near 24 hour daylight in June & July, however by late August and through September the evening provides darkness with no distortion form the towns and cities hundreds of kilometres away.

All of this without having to bundle up for winter conditions. Daytime high temperatures can average a pleasant 15 to 20 degress Celsius and the evenings can get down into the single digits with occasional mornings dipping to below freezing showing a brilliant display of frost.
