Had a great time here! We enjoyed the plane ride to the lodge. We went snowshoeing, snow-mobiling, dog-sledding and walking. We saw the aurora EVERY NIGHT. The workers at the lodge were great. They went outside every 10 minutes at night (until 1:00pm) so they could wake us when the aurora was visible. They gave us all sorts of help to make sure we were comfortable and had a great time. One worker showed us how to make "cabana sucre" with maple syrup. We call had a chance to try it. They showed us an ice game called "kloob". If we had a question, they had the time to answer it. Dave, the manager, even shared some aurora photos with us since we had not brought a tripod for our camera. He was always ready to answer questions or help us. Janice, the cook was great. We had fantastic food and many choices. As a vegetarian, I rarely get to choose. I appreciate her work. The staff also went fishing and we had freshly caught fish!
