    Stop: 4 hours
    You'll be picked up from your Fairbanks hotel and driven to one of the best viewing lodges in the Fairbanks area. The lodge is carefully selected to ensure that guests can gaze upon the Northern Lights with ease. Outside of Fairbanks and away from the city lights, these wide-open areas ensure a perfect way to take in Alaska's winter sky. Share the evening with a knowledgeable guide and learn all about these dancing lights. Enjoy the sights from inside the lodge, or even step outside to snap some photographs of the brilliant sky . After an eventful night of Aurora viewing, guests are returned to their Fairbanks accommodation at 3am.

Joe are guide was amazing !!! Long time local Alaskan who is super friendly , very knowledgeable, and has tons of great story’s. He kept us entertained all night!!! Would def recommend going to view the Aurora with him at Aurora viewing lodge .

Also was nice to have a local who was used to driving on the Alaska roads(snow and ice). You could tell he knew what he was doing and I could tell the group felt a lot more comfortable knowing he was comfortable on the roads.

Thanks Joe

We had an amazing evening viewing the Northern Lights! Jacob was our guide and he was a blast! He was so knowledgeable about the lights, Fairbanks and Alaska in general. Brooke & Wayne were great as well! Everyone took great care of us. Taking photos, making a fire, hot chocolate, etc. definitely recommend!

We had a good time. The moon was very bright that night so it was hard to see the Northern Lights. I would recommend taking this tour.

Our tour guide was Joseph. He told great stories and was very entertaining. He was knowledgeable about the lights and Alaska. Joseph picked us up on time and drove the snow covered road like a pro. The best part of the evening was seeing the northern lights and meeting and socializing with the other guests. Be sure to bring your camera --it is a good idea to really understand how to take a picture to capture the beauty of the lights

What a wonderful experience! The lights were spectacular and the accommodations more than adequate. I really enjoyed chatting with Michael, our guide. I learned a lot about natural resources management and conservation within the unique political, social and ecological context Alaska provides. Super engaging discussion, and really made my trip!

We were picked up at the hotel by Michael at 10PM. He was our driver and tour guide. He was very friendly and helpful. He told us he would stay with us even till 5AM should we decide to wait for the northern lights.The lodge was warm with large viewing windows. We were very lucky to see the aurora shortly after we arrived. It was a scale 5 out of 9. We took many pictures from inside the lodge, not even having to fight against the coldness outside. The big windows were the best things of the night!! We went back hotel at 2AM. Highly recommend the tour!
