Discover the Northern Lights

The aurora belt in Interior and the Far North in Alaska is one of the most active in the world, making Alaska one of the top worldwide destinations to spotting the elusive northern lights. The colorful Aurora Borealis is best viewed near Fairbanks, Coldfoot on the Arctic Circle, or in the villages of Alaska’s North Slope during the fall and winter, October through March. You can combine a relaxing stay in a comfortable Alaskan lodge nestled in wilderness with nightly, guided excursions to the best northern lights viewing locations. When you see the Northern Lights for the first time, you will instantly understand why experiencing this natural phenomenon and life-changing event is on so many travelers’ bucket lists. The natural lightshows of Aurora Borealis will dazzle you and they are even more intoxicating when you realize that what you are seeing will never happen quite the same way, ever again.
