The province is home to some of the world's most luminous locales for gazing in awe at the aurora borealis - those shimmering curtains of multi-coloured light that dance and weave their way across the night sky.
Manitoba's northern region provides some picture-perfect vantage points, with peak viewing season running from January to March every year.
Located directly below the aurora oval - where shooting particles from the sun collide with the Earth's atmosphere - Churchill is considered one of the top three spots on the planet for observing this otherworldly phenomenon.
Book an overnight adventure tour that offers sky-gazing access from the deck of a heated tundra vehicle, take in the show from the comfort of a cozy aurora dome or watch from the covered viewing lounge and open-air deck of the Churchill Northern Studies Centre.
Farther south, you can head to Flin Flon for a stay at a lakeside lodge that offers fishing, hiking and snowshoeing between nightly viewings, or pay a visit to cottage country at The Pas, where the Northern Lights are said to be visible all year-round. Grab your camera and record some jaw-dropping shots of the skies, or simply stare transfixed as the ethereal artistry unfolds.
