Tour Description:

The Aurora Borealis is one of the most amazing natural wonders on earth.  Join us on a quest to view and photograph the Northern Lights in and around the greater Fairbanks 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 Fairbanks.  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 industry-exclusive forecasting/insurance service. This service is $20 per person.  This non-refundable service fee includes a personalized Aurora forecast each night you are booked and provides you with the opportunity to either: join us on favorable nights, reschedule your tour to the next night you have reserved, or cancel your tour on unfavorable nights.   

We use our fleet of comfortable tour vehicles as traveling base camps.  Tours generally depart between 8-11 pm and return between 3-6 am, depending on the season and forecasted conditions.  

Our minimum age to join this tour is 13

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.
