The only thing better than experiencing the famous aurora borealis is capturing it on camera. And it can be tricky—which is why going with a photo tour makes a lot of sense.

Also, you don’t want to cut your time short. After all, clouds happen—especially in northern latitudes where the aurora can appear. So plan to spend several days, and to go at the best possible time of the year. In this part of Alaska, late March into April is when you’ll find the greatest number of clear days; late March is also when one of the equinoxes happen, which is when aurora frequency peaks.

That’s why this tour gives you 6 days during that small window in late March—to maximize your chances of seeing the aurora and the spectacular mountain scenery of the Eastern Alaska Range to get the best possible shots.

And if there is cloud cover, you want to have alternate plans, so you can still capture something truly unique and Alaskan. This tour also offers the potential to shoot in a glacier ice cave, as well as the surrounding mountain landscapes still cloaked in winter white and to photograph the iconic Alaskan sport of dog mushing.

Included in the tour are an expert guide and tour leader/driver, ground transportation, 6 nights single occupancy lodging, and public lands entrance fees. Transportation to Fairbanks, meals, gratuities, and personal expenses are extra.
