Scheduled around the new moon, this immersive dog mushing aurora tour is unlike any other!

It is estimated that visitors who stay in Fairbanks for three days have a 90% chance of viewing the northern lights. We maximize your chances with a 5 day, 4 night aurora tour scheduled during the darkest skies of the year.

We will travel by dog team into the remote, pristine wilderness of the White Mountains National Recreation Area. The White Mountains are marked by rolling black spruce forest, rocky limestone cliffs, open river valleys, and mountain ridges adorned with mystical black granite tors.

Experience a truly serene Alaskan aurora experience. We have handpicked our campsites for their unobscured northern horizons, providing a dream backdrop for aurora viewing. Our aurora viewing sites are private; accessible only by dog team or snowmachine.
