Wondering how folks up here deal with Alaska’s long winter days? It’s easy when the inky night sky comes alive with an amazing light show like the aurora borealis. Braving the cold is nothing if you get a chance to see the lights dancing and waving overhead. Combine your aurora viewing trip with a few other highlights planned out by Salmon Berry Tours, and you’ll experience the best of winter in Alaska.
Northern Alaska Tour Company offers a diverse selection of tours designed to get you under the northern lights. Tours start in Fairbanks and include trips north to Coldfoot, a remote town perfectly situated under the "auroral oval," where you will find the best displays of northern lights. Northern lights trips run from late August to late April when the skies are dark and auroral activity is common. Plan on spending a few days in Fairbanks to catch the best displays.
