Please be aware that the Aurora does not appear every night, even when the sky is clear, and it also cannot be seen through cloud. We cannot therefore guarantee Aurora sightings at any time, including on New Moon Aurora dates.

@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 💚🖤🤍💙
