Drive on Ice Roads to the Top of the World
Launch into an extreme, once-in-a-lifetime Northern Canadian winter road-trip through the Yukon and Northwest Territories with Arctic Range Adventure’s Ice Road to Tuktoyaktuk with a professional at the wheel. It’s the ultimate winter driving adventure – across a blue ice freeway atop the frozen Arctic Ocean.
When: March and April.
Where: Yukon and Northwest Territories.

Nature’s Light Show
See ribbons of green, red, blue and purple rippling across the sky, gathering momentum until the Northern Lights shimmer and loop over the entire horizon in surreal swathes of colour. Watch in silence in Nunavut to understand how the lights become so intense that they sing or crackle. The Aurora Borealis is Mother Nature’s light show. Grab a front row seat when nights are long and dark. Try fly-fishing for Arctic Char by the lights of the Aurora in far Northern Quebec or pair light-peeping in the Northwest Territories with a locally sourced gourmet meal of caribou.
When:  September through April.
Where: Parts of Newfoundland and Labrador, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Northern Quebec, Yukon.

Crystal Hut Fondue by Snowmobile
Be in command of the excitement. Gear up with goggles and a helmet, ready to ride the state-of-the-art snowmobile. After a short training session, zoom through the night, enjoy exclusive after-hours access to one of the world’s most famous mountains. Pull down on the throttle and go faster, following the red light of the snowmobile ahead. Head into the warmth of the Crystal Hut and enjoy a delicious three-course fondue feast, family-style with fellow adventurers.
When: December to April.
Where: British Columbia.
