This short trip highlights great Canadian hospitality, and offers some of the world’s best Aurora Borealis viewing.  Enjoy rustic simplicity at Trout Rock Lodge, located on Great Slave Lake one hour north of Yellowknife.  After days of snowmobiling, ice fishing and snowshoeing, look up to the starry skies and enjoy nightly light shows, produced by Mother Nature herself.

Located on Great Slave Lake, the 10th largest lake and the deepest lake on earth, the Trout Rock Lodge is a cozy and rustic lodge that’s located one hour outside of Yellowknife, the capital of the Northwest Territories and directly under the Auroral Oval. The design and location of the lodge allow for optimal photography and viewing.

Your knowledgeable hosts will tend to your every need in your rustic abode by the lake.

Today you will enjoy a memorable outdoor adventure, starting off with a snowmobile ride on Great Slave Lake to the perfect ice fishing spot, where you will fish for the lake’s fierce Northern Pike or Ling Cod. You can also enjoy snowshoeing along the windswept shoreline or touring the area in one of the Hagglunds. On your final evening, enjoy a hearty meal and viewing the Lights from the deck, or venture out onto the lake for a 360 degree view of the sky. Accommodations are at the Trout Rock Lodge.
