Wow. What a fabulous evening we had when we did the tour with Aurora Village. It was fabulous. First we had a great dinner and then off to the heated teepees. The Aurora was spectacular.

Pros: This place was very cool. Felt like the area was secluded with several short hiking trails to get away from crowds as well as a wide open lake area for great viewing. The teepees were fun to be in and the restaurant was nice....More
