Tour Description

The Aurora Borealis is one of the most amazing natural wonders on earth. Join us on our Private Fairbanks Northern Lights Tour 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 $100 per group. This non-refundable service fee includes a personalized Aurora forecast each night you are booked and allows us to provide you with the best possible chance of success on the nights you have reserved.

The aurora can be visible anytime we have adequate darkness; from late August through mid-April.  The main obstacles to finding auroras are cloud cover and light pollution. We will drive up to 3 hours outside Fairbanks to find clear, dark skies.  A full moon reflecting on the snowy winter landscapes can make it more difficult to see the aurora with the naked eye, but it can also give you the most breathtaking views of Alaska lit by moonlight and provide an incredible background for a nighttime tour and some amazing photography opportunities.

Although you shouldn’t be discouraged from joining an aurora tour around the full moon, if finding aurora is your main goal when traveling to Alaska, consider coming at a time of the new moon, and avoid the full moon and two days before and after. The full moon dates for winter 2022/2023 Alaska aurora season are 9/10/22, 10/9/22, 11/8/22, 12/7/22, 1/6/23, 2/5/23, 3/7/23, and 4/5/23.
