    The hot springs felt good. The ice hotel was fun to see. Getting the appletini drink took almost the whole hour as there was one person making drinks and a VERY LARGE crowd that was scheduled for the tour. The atmosphere of the activity center, which is where the night sky viewing room is, was like that of a basic ski center or camp type situation. There was a long wait in the main dining room so we ended up buying soup in a bowl to heat in the microwave at the activity center.

The travel itinerary is flexible to ensure guests can take advantage of unique photo opportunities.

    Who would have thought I could say a 15hr van ride with 9 strangers on a supremely bumpy road, was fun?! It was awesome! All the stops were well timed, informative, and beautiful. The guide, Jake, was knowledgeable, and skilled at navigating the Dalton. And even though the clouds were there,he showed us it was possible to see the Northern Lights burning through in some places. The skies did clear up some on the drive back, and even though it was 3am, our guide still made sure to stop where he could so we could all get out and look up. Had a great time and 10/10 would do again.

    Our guide Justin was great. Very knowledgeable. Good driver. Unfortunately, we only saw one red fox during our trip, but the weather was a factor. It was rainy and drizzly. Dalton Highway was muddy and had a billion potholes but Justin got us to the Artic Circle and back all safe and sound.

We enjoyed the tour. Our guide was very friendly and positive, took us to his favorite spot where the view of Aurora Borealis was really spectacular. He even took pictures for us as not all cameras are friendly to take night shots. We highly recommend Healy Denali Aurora Quest tour to all.
