Northern Lights

One of the most stunning natural attractions in the world is the Aurora Borealis. The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo gives you that experience

Displays can vary from just a few minutes to several hours. Sometimes the spectacle is like a bright dance, other times just a muted glow. Most often the lights are white and green but on rare occasions, red northern lights tower miles high in the northern skies. One thing is certain — no matter how many times you see the Aurora Borealis, it leaves you in awe, frozen in your tracks, gazing at the cross roads between visible and invisible forces of nature.
