Here are 10 ➑️ of my favourite northern lights photos from my last trip up to the Northwest Territories.

I'm very excited to be leading a group of 14 fellow night sky watchers this September at @blachford_ll as we seek out the iconic Aurora Borealis at a remote lodge away from the tourist crowds.

This year's tour edition is sold out, but you can still get on the waiting list, or sign up to my newsletter to be the first to know about next years edition!

@kailawalton and I just spent 5 days living in a painting at @blachford_ll! We saw the aurora, ate heaps of delicious food, had our eyelashes freeze, sat in the hot tub in the snow, and rode fat bikes on a frozen lake. It was so fabulous and I highly recommend the entire experience to all of you! #thisisblachford #spectacularnwt #nwtwillchangeyou Northern nights πŸ’šπŸ–€πŸ€πŸ’™
