Enjoy a unique holiday at the remote Blackford Lake Wilderness Lodge in the Northwest Territories. This program is timed during the “Aurora Season” between January and April. You can take your trip earlier in the season to enjoy the pristine winter, or a little bit later to take in some of the spring wilderness. While Aurora watching may be the top of the list for many, there is plenty of additional fun to be had and to keep you busy during the daytime hours, too. The 17 km long Blachford Lake is great for fat tire biking, cross country skiing, and snowshoeing. The charter flight to and from the lodge in a ski plane is one of the many highlights. You can stay busy all day or relax and recharge your batteries on this unique wilderness getaway. You can stay in a cosy rustic cabin, or choose a comfortable guest room in the main lodge, equipped with a sauna, hot tub and licensed bar. Delicious Northern meals are prepared and served buffet style.

No previous experience necessary to enjoy this winter getaway!
