My daughter (25) and her boyfriend are heading over in the next 2 weeks for a birthday trip to see the aurora (hopefully) Any advice on what to bring, its 78 here in NYC today! and they arent in the winter mood yet. Also since they have learned that October is not the best time to visit Fairbanks for winter activities I have been trying to find some fun things for them to do. Any info on the Artic circle tour? Is it worth the time? How about the Running Reindeer ranch? It seem like that they will have to be doing a lot of driving between places and they only have 5 days! Any info is MUCH appreciated. BTW where is the nearest supermarket from the airport, they will be staying at the Aurora B lodge and will have to have supplies.
