15 of the best spots to catch the northern lights in Canada


Northern Saskatchewan

North of Saskatoon, there is a wealth of Saskatchewan destinations to choose from for a incredible northern lights experience. Eleven provincial parks, many open year-round, provide the perfect setting for an aurora-themed camping trip. The northeast city of Melfort has been called “the city of the Northern Lights” due to the frequency in which they appear. And the town of La Ronge is a starting point for many northern lights adventure tours, including fly-in ice fishing trips and dog sledding expeditions over frozen lakes. Paws and Paddles Wilderness tours is a popular local operator.
