Northern Lights Tours and Lifetime Adventure from Anchorage

What to Expect

Our Aurora Borealis aka Northern Light excursions have an award winning professional photographer working with you to get that ultimate picture of a lifetime. Not only will you see the lights, you will get personalized photographic instructions at no additional cost! Just that alone will pay for this trip and more. We don’t rush like the others as our trips typically last 10 hours. Our trips are geared from the young to the young-at-heart. All of our locations are wheelchair accessible so we can accommodate most everyone.

We subscribe to several paid subscription services to track the Aurora Forecast for best viewing probability, weather/cloud conditions, as well as the locations for viewing them. Mother Nature is always the one in control of the lights and there is never a guarantee that the lights will show.

If there is less than a 30% chance of seeing the lights we will cancel the trip and issue a full refund. From a 30-60% chance of seeing the lights, the customer has the option to either, cancel for full refund or continue with the trip. At 60% or higher of seeing the lights the trip will continue with no chance for refund. We have a very high success rate!

The trip with Scott, the sympathetic guide, was well organized. The conversation during the ride was interesting and he provided food, drinks, covers and even music during the waiting time. However, keep in mind that you should have realistic expectations. During my tour, the

Scott took me on tour to see the northern lights. This is definitely the tour guide you’re looking for! He does extensive research before hand to determine the likelihood of seeing the northern lights which he explained to before we even left Anchorage. At the sight, the scene
