Nahanni National Park Reserve

Nahanni National Park Reserve is located in the Northwest Territories of Canada. This wild land attracts mountain climbers, paddlers, trekkers and flightseers. Most visitors come in by floatplane, as there are no roads in the park. The aurora is frequently visible here in fall, winter and spring. With the Northwest Territories’ clear skies, ultra-low humidity, and location beneath the auroral oval, the sky dances with light. An EarthSky visitor describes Nahanni National Park Reserve: “Endless vistas for the backdrop of the most incredible night sky imaginable. Aurora borealis, stars that never set…. The angles for star light to enter and pass through the atmosphere give rise to twinkles of red, green, blue violet.”
