Arctic Circle Aurora Overnight Adventures  (2:03)

Experience the famous and mysterious northern lights in the rarefied air above the Arctic Circle—it’s an experience you’ll never forget. Go with Northern Alaska Tour Company from mid-September to late April—when the skies are dark and auroral activity is common—and witness this amazing phenomenon.

The Arctic Circle Aurora Adventure departs Fairbanks by land or air and offers optional excursions out of the remote town of Coldfoot, which will serve as basecamp during your adventure. Tour packages run 3 days/ 2 nights or 4 days/3 nights and include a spectacular flightseeing trip one-way combined with their informative ground tour on the other end of your trip.

Accommodations are simple and clean in the remote town of Coldfoot. The extra time means more opportunities to view the northern lights and explore the unique features of the fascinating land up north. Optional tours include dog sledding with a local musher and an excursion north to the Brooks Mountain Range’s Attigun Pass. An evening tour to historic Wiseman is a great way to watch for northern lights. You’ll even stop at a unique cabin for hot cocoa.
