Tour Description:

The Aurora Borealis is one of the most amazing natural wonders on earth.  Join us on a private quest to view and photograph the Northern Lights in and around the greater Anchorage area.  

We use innovative technology to forecast Aurora viewing conditions.  Each night’s tour location is chosen to maximize your chances to view the lights.  Our tour locations are chosen based on the weather forecast, aurora strength, and driving distance from Anchorage.  Our team of experts will get you to the most strategic location possible to see the Northern Lights. 

To ensure our guests go out on the best possible night(s) during their visit, we offer a valuable forecasting/insurance service. This service is $100 per group per day.  This non-refundable service fee* includes a personalized Aurora forecast each night you are booked and provides you with the opportunity to join us on favorable nights, reschedule your tour to the next night you have booked, or cancel your tour on unfavorable nights.    

This tour is designed for anyone visiting the Anchorage area that has an interest in viewing the Northern Lights. Our tours include web-quality Aurora portraits and basic photography instruction.

We use our fleet of comfortable tour vehicles as traveling base camps, in addition to heated portable winter shelters when possible.  Tours generally depart between 8-11 pm and return between 3-6 am, depending on the season and forecasted conditions.  Hotel pickup and drop-off are included. 

Due to ever-changing space and earth weather conditions, we recommend you book for each and every night you have available, beginning with the first night of your visit. This will maximize your chances of viewing success.
