Not many people know that Quebec has a great Northern Lights watching spot. The Nunavik region and its biggest city Kuujjuaq can be a perfect weekend runaway for those who want to see the aurora oval in all its glory. The region is deserted enough to provide an untarnished view of the night sky.
Once you are there, try local specialties like trout fishing and seeing caribou in their natural habitat. Spending a night in an igloo, or a night trip on the Hudson River can be also a thrilling experience.
