Full description
Experience the beauty and wild side of Alaska. Yanking on their lines and ready to run, your dog team will be anxious to carry you away from your Fairbanks accommodation to this spectacular viewing of the Northern Lights. Most of the sled ride takes place in an open area so should the Aurora begin early you will have a thrilling view of the sky from the dogsled. The Aurora Borealis is one of the planet's most breathtaking phenomena. In Alaska, a land that stays dark for most of the winter, these spectacular lights bring the sky to life with other-worldly colors that shimmer and dance across the sky. The yurt is only a short drive from Fairbanks but far from the obstructing glare of city lights. Be treated to a hearty midnight dinner in an off-the-grid yurt.  Stay warm with hot drinks and lively conversation in the comfort of your yurt while waiting for the Aurora. The large north-facing windows of your yurt offer the perfect Aurora viewing opportunity. However, should you decide to go outside for photographs or a full view of the sky, you will need to dress in warm layers.

    Five stars all the way! This experience was one of the highlights of our trip to Alaska. The nighttime dog mushing was an amazing way to see the dogs do what they love - running. The owner of the property and kennel was our musher. He called our Aurora experience a nighttime rainbow, which is the best way I know to describe the green light display we saw that night. There was another musher named Jody, who took the other couple on our tour out. Jody is a native Alaskan and had interesting stories to tell. The driver from our hotel and back, Joe, was from Alaska and told stories of his life growing up and living in AK. The food was good and the right amount for midnight meal. I HIGHLY recommend this for anyone considering a trip to Fairbanks. You don’t chase the northern lights on this tour, which we also did and also enjoyed. You do have a welcoming visit with Alaskans who want to welcome you to their home and their life.

    I would recommend this adventure to anyone and everyone

    Words can't describe how incredible this adventure was. Our driver was great. He was prompt with the pick-up. He also shared with us what to expect. The lights, I don't know how to put it into words. As for the dogsled portion. OMG, awesome to say the least. We are fairly well traveled and I can't think of anything that topped that experience. Much different than I thought it would be, but, it was incredible. Our musher was one of the nicest and most informative people I have met in a very long time. I believe his name was Driese. Some of you will see that the dinner has some harsh reviews. I can say, it was fine. Not the best, but, come on, what do you really expect. It may not be something you like, but, hey, the appetizers were awesome! The Salmon was sliced perfectly and the dried Salami was crazy good. Thank you

    The dog sled ride was amazing the dinner not so much!

    The dog sled ride was just awesome and the musher was great. Sledding at night with all the snow and Northern Lights was the best. The midnight meal was NOT good but she tried. Since we were not there for the food it was awesome and having a place to warm up was great!
