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 dog sled. 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.

It was amazing, The couple that hosted the dog sled and dinner was great. The dog sled was so much, and the dinner was very good. I wish at dinner time they would actually eat with us. I figure they dont do this for more of a couple experience. But the only complaint I have is, is that we had to leave at 2am. Me and my wife felt like we known this couple for years and where good friends. These are they guys that I would want to hang out with on my free time. Thanks for the good time.

This was by far the best thing we did while in Fairbanks. Joe was our driver and was on time as well as sociable and knowledgeable about the area. Our musher was Jared. He was friendly and told us about caring for the dogs and some about the dog sled teams from the area. We were allowed to pet and visit the dogs in the yard while they were being hooked up to the sleds. I was surprised the ride was smooth. The views were spectacular with the moonlight. Once back at the yurt we had a fantastic meal of salad, salmon, asparagus, rice, wine, and apple pie with ice cream for dessert. The yurt was warm and the staff were friendly and kind. After dinner we were fortunate enough to have the lights come out for about an hour. This was a magical experience I will remember for a lifetime.
