Added by Tara Stamnes

See the coveted northern lights in the perfect dark viewing spot!

Head up to Lake Minnewanka on a high alert night to get the perfect view of the Canadian Northern Lights.

You can go online to get updates on the best times to go and where they will be the brightest. While the dam at the lake may be overrun with people, explore around and you can find a nice empty viewing spot. Alternately, you can head to one of the many campsites on the Lake trail before July and get a view all to yourself.
