Aurora Viewing #2

Amazing Sights

-20 °C

So just when my usual bedtime rolled around, I was actually getting ready to go Aurora Hunting again. Instead of putting on my jammies I was getting on extra layers, snow pants and parka…and the biggest pair of boots I have EVER worn. I was given a pair of Sorel snow boots as part of my clothing rental, but the original size they gave me were a tad small and they did not come in half sizes so I had to wear a full size larger. I felt like I was wearing clown shoes – but at least I would be warm!

This experience of Aurora viewing was different from the first night, as we went to different locations to view the Northern Lights. Our group was small and organized through North Star Adventures. Unfortunately, the lights were not as amazing as the first night – maybe I was just spoiled. But had I seen the display like I did last night on the first night, it would still have been pretty spectacular. Our guide and driver, (Chet & Randy) took us to 4 different spots away from the city lights to capture the Aurora.


I am still surprised at the number of people who are travelling to this part of the world and are not prepared for the conditions. Did you do any research? You did realize it would be cold, right?

Traveller’s Tip #6: There is no such thing as bad weather – just inadequate clothing choices!
