Event description
Visit Yellowknife and the far North of Canada to photograph the Northern Lights in a winter landscape during the darkest nights of March!

About this Event

2 Events to choose from:

  1. Friday March 12 - Monday March 15
  2. Wednesday March 17 - Saturday March 20th

What is included?

  • Aurora Photography in the Northwest Territories!
  • Twin shared room for 3 nights, breakfasts, transportation, & professional photography instruction
  • Guide/instructor (Nick Fitzhardinge)
  • Max group size: 5 people
  • Pick up/Drop off at Yellowknife Airport

We will chase the Northern lights three nights in a row to a number of locations in and around Yellowknife while staying at a cozy bed & breakfast in Old Town, Yellowknife. There are two events, one on March 12-15th & the other March 17th-20th. Make sure to select the dates that you want upon checkout.

What should I bring to the event?

DSLR/Mirrorless camera, wide angle lenses, tripod, filters, camera bag, cold weather clothing - lots of layers, mitts, beanie/toque, insulated winter boots, thermals, down jacket, face/neck warmer, lots of spare batteries, spare memory cards, headlamp & plenty of energy! We suggest the widest fastest lens that you can bring for capturing the aurora as your most important piece of camera equipment. Ask us for our suggestions! (Telephoto lenses are also nice to bring just in case as we will photograph some edge of the day light too).

What are my transportation options for getting to and from the event?

We will be meeting at 2pm in Yellowknife on day 1 of the tour at our accommodation, checking in and having lunch together. I will pick you up and drop you off at the Yellowknife airport.

How cold will it be and will there be snow & wild weather?

This time of year can be very cold but sometimes it is mild too. Expect anything and even extreme sub zero temperatures of -40 Celcius (-40F) are not uncommon. We will only photograph in safe conditions however so come prepared in case we go out for short bursts of very cold weather shooting. Bring thin inner gloves and large winter gloves for over the top of those which makes camera operation much easier in the cold. Winter boots are essential and a down jacket is too. The beauty of March is it is often the clearest month of the year in this area which will maximize our chances for good aurora viewing!

What is NOT included in the event?

* All food and drink except breakfasts which are included.

* Travel and medical insurance. I highly recommend you purchase these before embarking on this trip.

* Your flights and travel to Yellowknife, NWT. Once you arrive into Yellowknife I will pick you up and take care of the rest!
