Fairbanks - Evening Aurora Viewing Tour

Guests Price: $115.00 - Members Price: $115.00
Solo Traveler Price: $115.00 - Members Price: $115.00
This fully-guided small group tour will take you to our facility within a popular Northern Lights viewing location outside the city of Fairbanks. Your local Alaskan guide will share the science behind the lights and their significance within Alaska Native cultures, as well as history of the area and personal stories of living in The Last Frontier! This evening excursion includes round trip transportation to the Aurora Borealis yurt which supplies guests warmth from the cold winter air and hot drinks to enjoy indoors or out! Please feel free to bring your own adult beverage and any additional snacks you may need! The warm facility for our group offers an indoor bathroom, lounge area with seating and tables, and complimentary hot beverages, treats, and instant ramen noodles! Keep your eyes to the skies for your chance to see the Aurora Borealis tonight! We'll make our return drive to Fairbanks in the early hours of the morning with opportunities for additional aurora viewing stop along the way. Complimentary snacks and bottled glacier wellness water are available onboard our small group vans. If mother nature gives us a good show, our approximate arrival back into Fairbanks is 2:00am the following morning.

A note about the Aurora: The Aurora is a beautiful thing! She has many variables... ones we can control, ones we cannot control. The variables of aurora viewing we cannot control include the weather, & the solar activity/aurora activity. What we can do to try to control these "uncontrollables" is to provide guests a chance to see the aurora multiple nights. The Fairbanks Visitors Center published a finding that if you spend 3 or more nights in the Fairbanks area, it will increase your chance of seeing the aurora over 80%!!! So to control this uncontrollable, we provide guests one night Fairbanks Aurora tours with the option to accompany us for a multi-day Aurora package!

Factors we can control? The number of nights you stay, the amount of time you spend aurora viewing and when to aurora view. The Aurora Viewing Season is from August 21 to April 21. We book our aurora viewing tours within this season because it is dark enough here in Alaska to see lady aurora! The number of nights aurora viewing - we like to start with the Northern Lights Overnight then from there continue to Fairbanks (see: Northern Lights Getaway Package). Lastly, the amount of time you spend aurora viewing is easy because we have you go on tour. It is very difficult to fall asleep on a guided tour so you have LOTS of time to aurora view because you are staying up to looking for them. When you are here - use the Geophysical Institute's Aurora Forecast to see what the solar activity/ aurora activity is predicted for each night you are here! http://www.gi.alaska.edu/AuroraForecast
