We joined the Musher's Cabin Tour and would have done it again if they only have another tour scheduled during the Thanksgiving week we were at Fairbanks. We are so glad we did this tour, and felt lucky that we landed in Fairbanks on the day of their last scheduled tour during the week we were there. The overall tour... More

I decided to give The Aurora Chasers a try after the raving reviews on TripAdvisor and I am glad that I did. To begin with, their business website is very well written and well informed of visitors what to expect and how to prepare. I got all the wears and gears that I needed based on the site. Second, Ronn... More

I have no adequate words to describe the Aurora Borealis; nor can I say an adequate thank-you to Marketa and Ronn. the Aurora Chasers. From the very start when I booked online, they were always helpful, always patient with me, always utterly passionate about what they were doing. When they picked me up in Fairbanks for a photography and viewing... More

My husband and I have been living in Anchorage, Alaska for a year and 1/2 now, and much to our disappointment, we've yet to have an epic northern light sighting. Determined to change our luck, 4 of us flew to Fairbanks last week specifically to see the lights. Since we only had one full night in town, we decided to... More

I cannot speak enough to Ronn and Marketa. They are a wealth of information, super patient and genuinely decent people. They run a respectable business and really do make sure that they can give you the best experience possible. I rented a camera as I do not have my own and got photos I never otherwise could have.

Twice I've had the pleasure to chase aurora with Ronn & Marketa, and twice we were lucky to get a fantastic show. It's not just sitting around in the dark waiting for the lights to come out - it's the depth of understanding aurora that Ronn & Marketa share, coupled with enviable photography skills, local knowledge, and a sheer passion...

Marketa and Ronn are amazing. They are extremely knowledgeable about the auroras and use live scientific prediction tools to anticipate the auroral activity. They are excellent photographers as well. Their set up in the van is state of the art. They are extremely passionate about the auroras which reflects in their tour. Yes the tour is expensive but is totally... More

The tour is very well organized. It is run by a couple that is extremely knowledgeable about physics of the Aurora phenomena and very enthusiastic about sharing this knowledge with visitors.
