Pros: Staff will come to inform guests if Aurora being spot
Cons: Notice board informed to have video show and ends up nothing as we waited for half an hour without explanation
Pros: Everything, there is no other better place to stay to see Aurora lights, and if you are with kids, this place is perfect, because you do not need to go any further than the front of your cabin or the lodge to see the lights, the staff help you in everything. Food is also great !!!
Cons: You have to be on the mood of the forest, cabins do not have showers, but you get nice hot water in the lodge. The only activity you do not get there is dogsledding, but you can do it in Yellowknife, before or after your stay. Also the plane that takes you there leaves at 10 AM, we had to stay overnight in Yellowknife, but got the opportunity to visit the ice castle and do the dogsledding activity at Beck's Cannel.
