Fairbanks Snow Sleighers made for a great experience!! My young adult children and I had a blast on this trip! Our guide Spencer made it a wonderful experience for us. Although the lights didn’t show, I would recommend this trip 100%.

We found Snow Sleighers from trip advisor. We specifically wanted to see the Aurora Borialis. It was -15 below. But the sky was clear. Spencer, our guide check us over and asked if we wanted to upgrade any of our snow gear(except snow coats) it made a huge difference in our comfortability. Took off at 10:30 pm and started chasing the northern lights. The snowmobiles were newer, all running as they should. Spencer answered our questions and shared experiences. Very easy to get along with for 4 hours. Made multiple stops. And saw the northern lights from about 11pm-2am. It was cold! But the right gear took the edge off. Let them out fit you with the right stuff. We brought hand warmers. That helped. Use Snow Sleighers!

We did the Northern Lights tour. Our guide, Tim, was friendly, knowledgeable, and an excellent guide in what likely was my most fun time on the trip! Though we did not get a clear view of the Lights due to weather conditions, we did not leave disappointed. We snow machined through untouched snow, different terrains, stopped at viewing spots, and saw hints of wildlife in the dark (fresh lynx tracks!). What's more - your guide will take A+ photos of you. Would highly recommend this tour for adventure seekers.

Had a fabulous time riding the Snowmobile through the snow of Fairbanks. First time snowmobiling, but had no issue getting the hang of it in a matter of minutes. The route and scenery is beautiful and worth every penny. All required gear can be rented (Snow Jacket, Snow Pants, Gloves, Snow boots, Helmet, etc.) so no need to go out and get your own. Just layer up on the inside. My guide was Spencer and he did a fabulous job leading and showing me around. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to visit Fairbanks!
