In the winter the adventure continues. The lodge itself is welcoming atop a rolling, snow-covered hill. Inside the main lodge, or in one of our cabins, a cozy wood fire offers warm comfort. Through the day, follow well-marked trails on skis, snowshoes or by snowmobile. Relax with your favorite beverage in the early evening before sitting down to a gourmet dinner prepared by our red seal chef. Later, on clear nights, the Aurora may dance overhead. Enjoy the lights from one of our decks, our hot tub, or snuggled under a duvet in your room. The lodge even offers Aurora Wake Up Service to catch the Northern lights at their best.
One may ask why not just stay in Yellowknife and view the aurora? To experience northern lights to the fullest potential you have to get away from city lights and the "light glow" of any populated area. This lodge is fly in only -- there are no other camps or cabins within many miles -- you are in the true wilderness with no light obstructions to hinder your view of the aurora. The main lodge was designed with aurora viewing in mind. All bedrooms offer prime viewing as do the dining, lounge areas, Aurora room, decks, sauna deck, and hot tub. Come experience the northern lights playing directly over the Lodge in awesome multicolored displays. You'll have an exclusive, front row seat for nature's own light show after dark.
This lodge lies below the Auroral oval, the enormous band of energy that circles the North Magnetic Pole. Here you are as close to the Aurora as any earthbound spectator ever gets. If the weather is clear, chances are good that you'll see the Aurora on almost any night between mid-August and mid April
Two interpretive tours of 2-hour duration are included in the price. Guides are available for an additional cost for snowmobiling tours.
The lodge will have a First Nations guide available full time in the winter. As the package includes one-two hours interpretive experience per day these might include, pending which of our First Nations guides hosts are available, snowshoeing and animal track identification, stories, and legends in the tipi, traditional Dene beadwork, learning how to make drums, dried fish moose or caribou.

There are five large guest rooms on the second floor of the main lodge, with access to shared shower and washrooms (no private washrooms in the rooms). Lodge rooms are dressed with down duvets and feature huge windows with expansive views. There are two viewing decks upstairs and an outdoor hot tub. The main floor serves as the lounge, with bar, dining room and library. The main floor also houses the kitchen and a small office, and his and hers showers and washrooms, shared with cabin guests. Unusually for such a remote facility, our washrooms not only have hot running water but also hotel-style toilets; you would hardly know they are the eco-friendly composting kind!
There are five log guest cabins to choose from - separated for privacy. Each has its own lake view, outside campfire pit and outdoor toilet close by. They all have electric lighting and power and feature a minimum of four beds with down duvets. Showers and bathrooms are a five-minute walk to the lodge. All cabins are heated by a woodstove. For those who like the easy life, but with the coziness of real fire, two of our cabins now have pellet stoves which make no demands on fire-lighting skills!
Some cabins have a private ensuite toilet facility and other cabins have access to the shared Aurora Comfort Station which is a heated toilet facility and wash basin with a skylight.
The lodge and all cabins enjoy free wireless internet access. They are all non-smoking.
This lodge prides itself on its environmentally sensitive footprint. There are solar panels, wireless Internet, two high-efficiency wood-burning stoves and a remarkable waterless composting toilet system called a Clivus Multrum.
