You Can Watch The Northern Lights & Dine In Style On This Epic Manitoba Adventure

If you've ever wanted to experience the Northern Lights without freezing your butt off, this experience through rural Manitoba might just be for you.

Manitoba-based company Frontiers North Adventures has a specialized Tundra Buggy* that'll carry you through the spectacular sights of the Northern landscape, all while in the comfort of a heated vehicle with panoramic views from a viewing platform and even a bathroom on board.

"Frontiers North Adventures hosts guests primarily in Churchill, Manitoba, to dine beneath the northern lights, sing alongside beluga whales and lock eyes with wild polar bears," said the company in an email to Narcity.

The Tundra Buggy low-key looks like something out of a Star Wars film and the all-terrain vehicle is equipped to handle the rugged landscape, so you can sit back, enjoy the scenery and wildlife, and likely capture some Instagram gold.

And during the journey, you can hit up Dan's Diner for a unique dining experience. According to the website, the popup features "panoramic windows and skylights overhead so you may be able to catch a glimpse of the northern lights during your meal, weather dependent."

And if all of that isn't cool enough for you, the company also stated that they take social responsibility very seriously. "We work hard to leave a positive impact on our travellers, our employees and on the communities where we operate."

Before you get going, check our Responsible Travel Guide so you can be informed, be safe, be smart, and most of all, be respectful on your adventure.
