Mok is a honest and honorable businessman you can trust. He didn't charge us in advance. He told us it's going to rain that night and the possibility of seeing northern lights was very low. We trusted his judgement and didn't go for viewing. It turned out there's no northern lights that night. It saves us money and energy. (He... More

This place is outstanding. About 20 minutes north of Fairbanks, you are far enough away from the city lights for great views of the northern ones, yet close enough to drop into town when you want to. Mok is extremely friendly and willing to answer any questions you may have. As for the "Could be better" review below, if Mok... More

Mok is a fabulous host and the unit was clean and well equipped. He was super helpful with daytime activity (hiking) advice and great letting us know about Aurora activity. I would highly recommend staying here.

Good location only for Aurora viewing but really nothing around and no staffs at the lodge if you need them, They only there for a short time. We stayed for 3 nights and another 3 nights we moved to Alaska Heritage House (we liked it here better). The thing that disappointed us was we went back the night after check... More

We booked this well in advance and a lot really depended on the weather for a great view. Fortunately as we depart Alaska we were blessed with 3 nights of spectacular views of the northern lights. Mok made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived, greeting us as we drove in, and farewelling us as we departed this morning.... More

I was skeptical to book this early into the season... So glad I booked this tour. This was probably my favorite one! We were able to see the northern lights dancing across the sky. So beautiful! Cassie, our tour guide was very informative and made sure we were all having a good time! Highly recommend this tour!!

We (4 adults) booked 4 days in November 2015 to see the Aurora Borealis in person. Sadly, the day we arrived, so did the overcast, and we never did see northern lights. We stayed in Logan's Chalet, which was wonderful!!! We had privacy and quiet, but were just a hundred yards from the lodge and hot chocolate. Mok was the... More

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
