We drove up here twice before we saw the Northern Lights, but it was well worth it. Probably 20 other vehicles, along with tour buses, just sitting in the cold & dark, waiting for the show in the sky. Wear warm clothes and bring blankets because you have to turn off your car to see the Northern Lights.

Our guide Joshua was the best part of the Murphy Dome Activity . He was personable, helpful and fun. He took the time to help people with technical difficulties to ensure we captured great photos of the northern lights. It was definitely a plus that he arrived on time to pick us up , drop us off & played good music! Oh… he also made the best hot chocolate!!

Hoped to see the Northern Lights at Murphy dome,unfortunately wasn't a good nite.No ones fault,I understand.We did see some faint lights.Our tour guide,Joe was a safe driver,which was appreciated. His personality was a little boring for me,and he had trouble with the mic the whole night.No refreshments,a long night.

What a great experience this was through this outfit. Joshua was our guide. He was very informative, accommodating and genually a great guy to lead a tour. The yurt was warm with viewing windows facing the Northern sky. So we were cozy and comfortable waiting for the more spectacular moments to rush outside to experience and photograph. It was a pleasure all around. Again, thanks to Josh and a shout out to Sven, the owner, who personally came by to check on us and to thank us.

We came from Tennessee to get a real Alaska experience in the mid February. Thee best experience you can have like nowhere else is to see Northern light and go dog sledding. We did both. This will be unforgetable memory!!! We had a perfect guide - native Alaskan Joe. He is a safest driver I've ever had and the greatest storyteller. His stories are still in my head! My teenage son, who "knows life", was very impresseed too!!!

Our hosts were so lovely and made our group feel the most welcomed, they truly enjoy what they do and it shows in how they treat you. We were really lucky to see the lights and had a great time roasting marshmallows by the fire and stargazing.

We had a fantastic time on our northern lights tour. Dave picked us up from our hotel around 9 PM, in which he was more then knowledgable about the northern lights and all things Alaska. We felt safe on the drive and Dave's knowledge and experience allowed us to see two "sub-storms" during the night. Dave was kind enough to take photos of us as he is a professional photographer with experience shooting the northern lights. He had many great stories and information to pass the time when the Northern lights were not visible.

Ask for Dave!

What an amazing way to celebrate my 50th birthday!
Caleb was our guide... he was so easy to like and informative! I greatly appreciate learning when I am experiencing something for the first time and he was very helpful!
The Aurora Borealis totally met any expectation I may of had! It was beautiful and just aw-inspiring
Caleb made sure the whole bunch of us knew how to photograph the Aurora because it's a trick!
Thanks for providing such an wonderful experience and I hope to get to Murphy Dome again someday!!
