While the sky didn’t behave, Jeff was wonderful. He’s a native and a tremendous ambassador for Fairbanks. He was entertaining, had so many stories about the area, and he was just a delight! And he knows how to drive on those icy roads. We felt super safe at all times. Thanks for salvaging a fun evening, Jeff!

I think it is a very good alternative for the first timers to attend to. They have a nice cabin in the woods without city lights. Our guides name was Joe, very friendly and local. They offer hot water, cookies, tea and coffee. You can alternatively bring a can of soup and warm it there. As an alternative for the second timers or if it feels expensive and you want to explore yourself, you can pick a spot from google maps and drive there with your rental car. After all sky watching is free. You just need to find a nice spot.

Incredible overall experience

A great experience! Whilst we did not get to see the Northern Lights (just one of those nature/cloudy things!)... we still had a great time. There is so much more to this excursion than listed. The site is owned by Sven, a professional dog musher. Sven welcomes you and talks about the site, the dogs, the Iditarod, life as a musher etc. And there was also a guest speech by another musher. All this alone is worth the fee.. and should be listed in the description rather than just being a “northern lights” experience. Thanks for a great evening! We learnt a lot. Sven LIVES for those dogs of his.
