September weather & where to go

Vibrant autumn colours come to life in September which offer a backdrop of oranges and yellows as opposed to the greens of summer and the white snow and ice of the winter months. Temperatures head back towards 0°C, making more layers necessary than the previous months. The climate will, however, remain dry and clear.

Polar bear in summer, Arctic Canada safari

The sight of thousands of caribou roaming across the landscape is a fantastic once-in-a-lifetime experience. As you fly-in via private charter the clear skies allow for stunning sweeping vistas. Female caribou start the migration, followed by the males and young calves a few weeks later, heading south to warmer climes. Male caribou start to shed the velvet from their antlers during this time so you may spot them rubbing them against trees and shrubs in an attempt to remove it.

Although not the optimum time of year, it is possible to see the Northern Lights as early as August and September in Arctic Canada. Staying at the Arctic Haven Lodge you are located at the ideal latitude to view this natural phenomenon.
