Canadian Northern Lights Trip

Canadian Northern Lights Trip Overview:

Unique World-Class Northern Lights Trip with Sub-Arctic Wilderness Adventures in a Quintessential Canadian Fly-in Experience.

This is truly the best place to see the Northern Lights in Canada, if not the world ! The North Seal Wilderness rests in the narrow range where the Aurora Borealis are at their peak KP index – This is the home of 5 Star Gangler’s North Seal River Lodge on the North Seal Watershed.

The Best Northern Lights Experience Package in Canada

Gangler’s enjoys several advantages over more well-known Aurora areas. Our area sits 200 miles inland from Hudson Bay, enjoying more consistent weather which results in more clear nights for seeing the Northern Lights. We also sit at the southernmost fringe of the Aurora Zone so our periods of evening darkness begin in early August, allowing spectacular Northern Lights viewing in very comfortable evening temperatures. (30ºF to 65ºF , -1ºC to 18ºC)).

The Sub-Arctic is Remote, Wild and Pristine.

This is the Northern Lights trip you could only dream existed. Remote, wild, & pristine beauty – you have discovered one of the last remaining untouched areas in Northern Canada. Gangler’s 5 Star North Seal Lodge sits in the heart of the remote Sub-Arctic, Northern Canadian wilderness, 200 miles from the closest road and 60 miles south of the treeline. This geographically unique area is dominated by rare sand eskers spread through 100 lakes and 12 river systems. Eskers are large raised sand formations formed by the glaciers 10,000 years ago and rising 400’ above the landscape that extend as far north and south as 200 miles.Eskers by water

Eskers were used as key travel routes for both the annual caribou migration and the ancient peoples who hunted them for thousands of years for sustenance. You’ll witness and experience the beauty and ruggedness of a land forgotten by time.
