NOTE: We have indoor dog.

The space
The Aurora Lodge is FULLY OFF THE GRID.

In SUMMER we must hike down a trail 5-10 minutes walk depending on your speed. Then we cross the lake in canoe. 5-10 minutes.

I suggest to pack light baggage in summer because you will have to carry your bags down trail. (Unless doing VIP then i will carry bags for you)

In WINTER the Lodge freezes into the ice and you can drive right to the house.

The location, 17 kilometers outside of Yellowknife, and allows for amazing Aurora viewing far from City light pollution.

The lodge is FULLY OFF THE GRID -it is completely self-sufficient, relying on propane gas for heat and appliances. We also have a wood fireplace.

For POWER we use generator and solar panels that stores power in batteries for electricity.

The hosts live upstairs and will be there to make sure all systems run properly and the guests can focus on enjoying their visit without worries.

Guest access
Guests have access to entire main floor which includes bedrooms, kitchen, bar, and lounge area where Fireplace is located.

Guests also have access to the front and back deck to watch the Aurora.

We have countless hiking trails and lakes to paddle, swim or fish from.

In WINTER the same areas are used to snowmobile, hike, snowshoe or Cross country ski, or kite ski.

Other things to note
There is an indoor dog that lives at the lodge who loves people.

My wife and I are nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts who have been off the grid as Houseboaters for 10 years. We love being on the water paddling canoes, kayaks, motor boating, swimming, fishing, hiking, camping and nature photography and just being on the land and lakes. In winter, you'll find us out snow shoeing, cross country skiing, kite skiing, ice fishing, snowmobiling. I also love hosting and sharing the history, knowledge and true northern experience of living in the sub arctic and experiencing the best light show on earth: The Aurora Borealis!
