Legend says they’re spirits. Science says they’re supercharged particles. You’ll say “WOW!” February is typically our coldest, clearest month – each night so shattering still and crisp that, when the Aurora ignites, you’ll feel you can reach out and touch it. No place on Earth boasts the crackling, cloudless dark of mid-winter Yellowknife, nor our enviable location in the zone of maximal Auroral activity. That’s what makes us the Northern Lights capital of the world.
