My family stayed at Logan's Chalet & was very fortunate to see the Aurora all 3-nights of our stay! There is a tower next to the Chalet or you can walk up to the main lodge to view the Aurora a bit better. Since I'm not a good photographer, I didn't mind paying the small fee for Mok to take...

We stayed 1 night in a second floor lodge room which has 2 very comfortable queen beds a fully equipped kitchen and a spacious lounge area. It is extremely well maintained, very clean and has huge windows through which we hoped to see the aurora. The accommodation is on the top of Cleary Ridge and is very isolated so there... More

My husband and I and two other couples from Australia made a detour at the end of an Alaskan cruise to stay at the Aurora Borialis Lodge in the hope of seeing the Northern Lights. We each had an apartment and stayed for 3 nights from the 17th of September. The host Mok is, as stated in numerous reviews, absolutely... More

This is the best place to view and experience the Northern Lights in the Fairbanks area. It is away from the city, so completely devoid of light pollution with an obstructed view of the night sky in almost every direction giving you a great and unparalleled view of the Auroras. Also there are viewing platforms outside, that you could use... More

If you want to see the Northern Lights, don't even think of staying someplace else! This is the perfect place for the ultimate aurora borealis experience. Even if you have to book your reservation 2 years ahead of time, it is worth the wait. Mok and Akiko are gracious hosts and make you feel right at home. When we arrived,... More

I recommend Aurora Borealis Lodge without reservation and enthusiastically! It is well-run, accommodations are nice and thoughtfully appointed, better than expected. We debated about getting the upstairs unit just so we would have views both directions, but being inside turned out to be too limiting, and we spent all our time on the main lodge's viewing deck anyway. Be sure... More

What a wonderful place - I dont really know where to start. Firstly, making a booking was a slow process at first but i now understand how busy Mok and Akiko are! Once you're in touch via email and book your dates Mok can answer any questions you may have - and coming all the way from Australia, I had... More

There are so many wonderful reviews and I enjoyed my time at the lodge and could definitely add to them. I do want to add a few points that I never read in the reviews when you are making your decision to go as I would have chosen differently if I had known. The lodge has good size windows to... More

We traveled to Fairbanks in order to view the Aurora Borealis. We booked three night at this lodge but came a day early to have extra time. So glad we did. We came out the first night just to do the tour and be a guest in the main lodge where our hosts Mok and his family live and host... More

We were in Alaska to experience the Aurora Borealis, and there's probably no better place to do that than from the cabins. You have a modern and tastefully furnished apartment (the toilet even has several high-tech controls!) that sits on the edge of a hill facing North. If you choose not to bundle up, you can sit on the couch... More
