I wasn’t expecting to see the trappers of the early 1800s behind the historic Lac La Biche Mission, but there they were, frying up some bannock over the campfire.

The home of Debbie and Brian Hamilton is quiet and serene - a peaceful retreat that’s country living at its finest. But it’s the warm, friendly smiles and the sense of adventure of our hosts that makes Hamilton House the perfect retreat after all the festival seeking we’ve done.

Getting on to midnight, we’re close to the sweet spot for glimpsing the dancing bands of colours that can range from vivid shades of green to dazzling pinks. It’s completely up to Mother Nature though whether they’ll come out to wow us, so we continue to gaze skyward in the hope she’ll grant us our wish.
