When we talk about the Far North of Quebec and Labrador, we imagine the tundra, the fjords, the lakes, the mountains and of course the northern lights.

Of all these natural wonders that can be found in the far north, it is the phenomenon of the northern lights that amazes travelers the most. Seeing multicolored northern lights in the starry sky is an unforgettable magical experience.

It is really when the glows of pink, blue and green soar across the horizon, lighting up the night when the auroras are worthy of the most beautiful natural spectacles. This fantastic moment is often accompanied by surprise screams from all sides Wow! , Oh my god! , Oh là là!

The period when it is possible to observe the northern lights on the Golden Peninsula is between the beginning of August and March. Ideally to see the celestial vault illuminate, the sky must be completely clear of clouds and perfectly black. It is not uncommon to see the Northern Lights dancing in the sky at the end of the day between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m.

What makes observing the Northern Lights even more interesting are the landscapes and subjects that we integrate into this decor of colors. With icebergs slowly drifting over the sea, monoliths, mountains, fjords and waterfalls, you can make this magical moment even more unique.

If during your trip to the Golden Peninsula you want to take pictures of the Northern Lights, let us know. Our photographer guide will lend all of his experience so that you have the best chance to capture this phenomenon, as capricious as it is hypnotic.
