Our Alaska Northern Lights photo tours are exciting and rewarding for those looking to chase the aurora's. Our Northern Lights tours start further south than most, this is because we prefer the foreground that you generally don't get in other aurora shots. Our foreground has real mountains and large non-frozen lakes for beautiful reflections.
Northern Lights are visible September - March, while it is possible to see them a little into April and begining in August, the limited nighttime hours do provide much advantage to viewing them.
Tours begin in Fairbanks to guarentee your best chance of viewing the aurora borealis. From there we watch the cloud weather and space weather and see what are options are.
This tour can take you all over Alaska and the Yukon. Most common locations can include: Delta Junction (AK), Tok (AK), Valdez (AK), Talkeetna (AK), Paxson (AK), Whitehorse (YT), Kluane National Park (YT), Beaver Creek (YT) as well as many others with and without names.
Each evening we will set out to maximize clear skies, aurora viewing, and diverse foregrounds. Our tours cover a lot of driving for maximum change of scenery as best opportunities for viewing the Northern Lights. Some nights may cover up to 500 miles of driving to ensure you get the best possible aurora viewing.
For the more adventurous travelers this tour can include, remote off grid lodging and remote bush plane flights, if desired.
