Venture with us into the vast Canadian north—a remote tundra teeming with glacial landforms, boreal forest, and beautiful wilderness—accessible only by plane or boat. The destination: an exclusive, supremely-outfitted lodge that will be home base amidst days filled with wildlife spotting and outdoor adventures, and evenings featuring delicious dinners followed by opportunities to watch for the northern lights. Northern Manitoba is considered to be one of the best places in the world to view this phenomenon, and September is considered the best time to comfortably view the aurora borealis and to experience the other wonders of this extraordinary region. Discover the uniqueness of the area during guided interpretive tours focusing on
wildlife, botany, and geography, and learn about local plant life the First Nations Peoples used for food sources and medicines. At the lodge, take advantage of leisure activities like hiking, fishing, and kayaking or canoeing, or join optional excursions to further explore the area. Space is limited, so reserve today!
