The Aurora Borealis is one of the great wonders of the natural world. Best seen in the dead of winter when cold winds blow and the night air is crisp and dry, the glow of solar radiation ionizing in the Earth's atmosphere is a special sight usually reserved for the earth's most extreme latitudes. Now you can head out and experience it for yourself with a local guide who has grown up with the unique phenomena.
Your trip begins with a complimentary pick-up from your Fairbanks-area hotel or hostel at 11pm . Your local driver and guide will pick you up in a 9-passenger van, ensuring small, personalized service for you and your party. Because the Northern Lights are best viewed late in the evening, plan to rest before and after the tour as you may get back well after 3am.
After passing through and out of the city of Fairbanks, your guide will take you to a private location for full, open viewing of the night sky. Hot tea and chocolate will be provided, where you can sit, relax, bundle up and wait for the chance to see the glowing green lights creep across the night sky. Although the Aurora Borealis is never a guarantee, your guide will go out of his or her way to ensure the best possible chance of partaking in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
