This tour is excellent for both. In fact the rate for spectators is less then the workshop rate. Just call, email or text for details.

Northern Lights in Alaska from the end of April to mid August are not viewable at all.. We have lots and lots of summer light in our skies here. They do call us the Land of the Midnight sun.
