/ Do you think I will see Aurora on my dates
No one can really guarantee if you will see Aurora as it is a natural phenomenon and will depend on the weather.
But staying 3-4 nights can give you a 98% chance of seeing it.
that’s the best odds in the world.
We often have guests who have visited Aurora locations only to be disappointed.
Come to Aurora Village to see them
It’s raining/snowing in town can we still see aurora tonight.
Weather moves quickly.
There is often different weather out at the Village, so a lot of the time when it’s raining/snowing in downtown near Great Slave Lake, it’s not raining/snowing at the Village.
Also, because there are no mountains in this area, even a small amount of wind is often enough to blow the clouds away, so most of the time it will clear up for at least part of the night.
