It's unarguably one of nature's most spectacular light shows, so when the idea came up, there was no way we could turn it down.

On February 23rd, 25 of us are boarding planes, flying north and chasing one of the craziest things this planet has to offer.

The Auroras.

Taking over the entire Takhini Hotsprings Hostel – these four days will be part retreat, part adventure, part chase.

Snow cave building, workshops, auroras, sunrise yoga, hot springs, rad humans, and a whole bunch more, we're packing as much into these 4 days as humanly possible.

We just can't help it. This is the kind of thing we live for.

If you're in, sign-up below.
