Ultimate Aurora – Autumn
(August 15-mid October)
When the night returns to the North, the Aurora Borealis becomes visible once more. Take a float plane to Blachford Lake Lodge to help us celebrate this unique autumn wonderland.
Go fishing for whitefish, pike, and trout; kayak or canoe Blachford Lake at sunset; take a hike among the fall colours; listen to the loons call as you sit by our outdoor fire; warm up in the sauna after a refreshing dip in the lake; dine on your own catch of the day, masterfully prepared by our Chef; watch the northern lights dance across the sky – their reflection in the still lake an illusion of endless sky. Book now!
Ultimate Aurora – Winter
During the winter months a ski plane – the start of your adventure – will transport you from Yellowknife to Blachford Lake Lodge. After the plane banks and lands on Blachford Lake, you will be treated to the experience of a lifetime.
Go for a cross country ski across the frozen lakes and snowy trails; learn traditional Dene Net-fishing techniques; snowmobile to the ice ridges on Great Slave Lake, the deepest lake in North America; go snowshoeing on our trails; play hockey with fellow guests and staff; dine on a lavish white fish dinner; witness the aurora wave and whisper its way through the crisp northern sky from the warmth of our hot tub.
