The tour is a great value, shuttle from downtown included. Warm indoor space with warm drinks and cookies for waiting, Mok (rhymes with bloke) is the best host imaginable. The 10pm until 2am hours flew by! The outdoor deck is ample for individuals and the tour bus arrivals, there's room to set up tripods, and great advice available to shoot... More

I just came here for the Aurora Tour, I didn't book a room to stay. First impression, I was skeptical. The tour van looked weak and was crowded. We came on a slow night, and every seat was filled. There was about 25 of us there with room for more people. The Lodge is beautiful, spacious, lots of seats, very... More

I booked our hotel about 1 1/2 year before, as a Christmas gift to my husband, whose dream was to see the Aurora Borealis. You will need to book that early, since the lodge has only four rooms plus one separate chalet and the period for best chances to see the Lights is not too long. We booked four nights... More

We went to The Aurora Borealis Lodge for an evening to see the Northern Lights. A driver picked us up at our hotel and drove us to the lodge. The place was a perfect location for Northern Lights viewing and Mok was a great host. We had 4 solid hours of Norther lights viewing. I would recommend this to anyone.... More

If you ever venture to the Fairbanks area to view the spectacular aurora borealis, stay at Aurora Borealis Lodge at Cleary Summit for wonderful accommodations and an incredible view of the northern lights. Mok (the owner) and his wife Akiko, along with business partner Logan Ricketts, have built a cozy, well-equipped lodge and chalet for viewing the lights and "unplugging"... More

We had five of us (two families) spent a few nights at the Aurora Borealis Lodge. Instead of staying in the individual rooms we chose the Logan's Chalet which was a single stand alone lodge with a single bedroom on the ground floor and a loft with two queen beds. This chalet is not on the same property with the... More

I just returned from a 5 day trip that included myself, husband, sister and brother in law. We stayed in Logan's Chalet which was perfect for 2 couples. The kitchen is modern and the living area is cozy, complete with an electric fireplace in the island that divides the kitchen and living room. The upstairs loft has 2 beds, so... More

The lodge is small in number of rooms but each room is of impeccable quality, spacious and with large windows for watching the Northern Lights. On 3 of our 4 nights we saw amazing, spectacular and breathtaking displays from the large comfortable couch in our rooms. Kitchen is well equipped. The management is cooperative, attentive and we rate this as... More

We had a wonderful stay at the lodge. Accommodations were unbelievable. Mok made our visit very easy. Driving to the lodge was safe and clear roads. We got to see the Northern Lights on all 3 nights. Very convenient walkie-talkies in the room to notify us when the lights come out. The room was very lean and comfortable. The kitchen... More
