Witness the Dancing Lights

Northern Alaska lies within the auroral zone, providing unique opportunities for visitors to see the phenomenal show of dancing lights. For this private tour program, we’ve chosen Fairbanks as your gateway city, which offers access to a number of aurora viewing opportunities.

We can expand your adventure with a few other uniquely Alaskan highlights including a visit to Chena Hot Springs, and a private visit to a dog sled kennel where you’ll learn about Alaska’s official sport and take a ride with a dog sled team.
