Experience the Great Dancing Lights

The aurora belt in interior and northern Alaska is one of the most active in the world, making Alaska one of the top destinations to watch for the northern lights. While there are no guarantees that the northern lights will display on any particular night, winter is the best time of the year to catch a glimpse, with peak chances occurring in March. The period of daylight is also shorter in the wintertime, further increasing your chances of catching a view of the celebrated aurora borealis.

We can provide a variety of experiences for you to immerse yourself in the aurora borealis on your winter vacation. Consider embarking on a tour up to the Arctic Circle, including plenty of opportunities to stop and view the northern lights. Try taking a northern lights photo workshop taught by local photographers, so that you can you can document this one-of-a-kind adventure to share back home.

Consider one of our sample programs below that heavily feature the aurora borealis that Alaska is famous for, or fill out our Custom Proposal Form for an itinerary that is unique to you.
