Most of us know the Northern Lights, but being in the right place at the right time to capture those incredible shots is another thing altogether. Late fall, winter and early spring are the best times to witness nature’s best light show in Northeastern Ontario. In other words, we’re heading into prime time for anyone thinking about planning a Northern Lights Trip!

Until then, enjoy and be inspired by these captures from talented photographers and Instagrammers around our BIG region:
