Aurora Borealis Tours

  • Atmosphere 5.0

The aurora borealis – commonly called the northern lights – are one of the most popular attractions in Fairbanks. The region is situated under the "aurora oval," and from late September to early April, visitors flock to the region to view the spectacular light show. The city lights of Fairbanks tend to wash out the northern lights, so most tours head north on the Dalton Highway into the countryside for optimal viewing .  

A number of tour companies , including Ben Boyd's Alaskan Northern Lights Tour and Northern Alaska Tour Company , offer a variety of experiences, from an eight-hour evening viewing tour to a flightseeing and driving tour package that heads to the Arctic Circle. Those who prefer to plan their own trip can drive north to the Aurora Borealis Lodge to take a self-guided driving tour or even book a room for several nights of viewing.

Many recent winter visitors raved about Ben Boyd's Alaska Northern Lights Tour, complimenting his patience for aurora hunting. Many guests enjoyed Boyd's stories and cultural activities like hoop dancing as much as they loved seeing the stunning light show. Other recent Fairbanks visitors took the Arctic Circle fly/drive tour with the Northern Alaska Tour Company and praised the flight experience, as well as the return educational bus trip back to Fairbanks.

Although tours are available beginning in late August, it's best to wait until mid-September or later for optimal viewing conditions. Most tour companies will pick up guests from any Fairbanks hotel or accommodation as part of the package price. Evening tours run from 9 p.m. to about 4 a.m. and average $75 to $85 per person, while more extensive tours like the Northern Alaska fly/drive Arctic Circle viewing tour begins at $269 per person. Self-guided driving tours at the Aurora Borealis Lodge cost $25 for adults and $15 for kids 6 to 15, while the premier guided tour starts at $75 per person, including pick-up and return from area lodging. For additional information on viewing the northern lights or local tour companies, visit the Explore Fairbanks' Aurora Viewing page .

#1 Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitors Center

The Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitors Center is a great first stop to pick up maps and information on things to do in Fairbanks. In addition to exhibits on the natural history of the region and the cultural history of Alaska natives, the center offers a free film on Alaska's history and nature. What's more, on the first Friday of every month, the center hosts a free reception featuring the work of an Alaskan artist from the interior region. This is also where you'll find the city's famous Antler Arch, a piece constructed with more than 100 moose and caribou antlers collected from all over interior Alaska.

Most recent visitors said this free museum was an ideal first stop for learning about Alaskan life, with a good mix of history and culture. Many found the central downtown location convenient, and families particularly enjoyed the interactive displays for kids. Some visitors were disappointed that the informative movie only runs once per day, but all travelers complimented the friendly and knowledgeable staff.

Aurora Season

Fairbanks' renowned aurora viewing lures people from all over the world during Aurora Season. But why is Fairbanks, Alaska popular for viewing the northern lights and when should you visit? How do you look for the aurora and will you stay warm doing so? If you've thought of these questions, you’re not alone! Keep reading to have these frequently asked questions answered and get other useful information about this magnificent natural phenomena.

Northern Lights in Fairbanks

It's no surprise that with Fairbanks' location, it is frequently referred to as the best place to see the northern lights in Alaska, the United States and in many cases, across the globe.

There are many different ways you can hunt for the aurora. You can drive to a nearby vantage point and wait for them to appear, or take a tour and watch them from a heated “aurorium” cabin, yurt, dome or lodge. You can also see them on a dog sled adventure or while you are ice fishing, on a snow cat tour, via a trip part way up the Dalton Highway or even on a flight above the Arctic Circle.

Aurora Viewing Map & Guide

Use the brand-new Aurora Viewing Map & Guide to plan your aurora viewing adventure in the Fairbanks area. In addition to an easy-to-use map detailing northern light vantage points, you'll find science information, pro tips for aurora chasing and FAQs.

While you're in Fairbanks, a printed copy can be picked up at the Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitors Center, local hotels or through tour operators. 

View the wonder of the northern lights in Fairbanks with this short video!

Aurora viewing faqs, why is fairbanks such a great place to view the northern lights.

Fairbanks’ location is ideal for northern lights viewing because it is under the “Auroral Oval,” a ring-shaped zone over the far north where aurora activity is concentrated. Additionally, Fairbanks’ low precipitation and distance from coastal areas contribute to consistently clear nights. All combined these variables make the Fairbanks region an outstanding destination for possible aurora borealis viewing.

When is the best time to see the northern lights?

Fairbanks’ Aurora Season is from August 21 to April 21 and the aurora will be visible in Fairbanks an average of four out of five nights when the sky is clear and dark enough. Scientifically speaking, the aurora is dancing above year-round, but we can only see it during the Aurora Season when we have dark enough skies.

Am I going to see the aurora if I visit Fairbanks?

The northern lights are so prolific in the Fairbanks region and the Arctic that visitors who stay a minimum of three nights and are actively out during the late evening hours increase their chance of seeing the aurora to more than 90 percent!

How can I see the aurora?

There are so many different ways, but a great way is to take a northern lights tour with a guide. You can view them from a heated “aurorium” cabin or lodge, see them on a dog sled adventure, on a snow cat tour, via a trip part way up the Dalton Highway or even on a flight above the Arctic Circle. Or perhaps you want to go fishing while you wait and go on an evening ice-fishing adventure on a local lake! All of these are great options, or if you are a do-it-yourself adventurer, you can drive to a nearby vantage point and wait for them to appear. See below for accessible spots around Fairbanks.

What colors will I typically see on my visit?

Visitors will most typically witness a swirling array of green, teal, and white. An intense aurora can get a purple or magenta edge. The aurora takes on different shapes such as curtains, bands, rays and coronas.

What should I wear to go aurora hunting?

Layers, layers, layers and dress warmly! You will likely be out in the elements for extended periods of time. Rely on synthetic, wool, and fleece materials, especially in the winter. For more on how to dress for winter pursuits, watch this video.

How to Photograph the Aurora

  • Read this blog post with helpful tips and tricks from local guides.
  • Locate a dark area with minimal light pollution. Point your camera at the northern sky and compose your medium-distance foreground with a fixed object such as trees, hills or a cabin.
  • Use a digital camera with manual settings and a solid tripod. 
  • Use a remote shutter to minimize camera shake.
  • Bring extra camera batteries and a flashlight or headlamp and dress for extended times outdoors.
  • Manually set your camera on its highest ISO setting, widest focal point and lowest aperture.
  • Expose each shot for approximately 5 to 10 seconds. Longer exposures will result in brighter images, but stars will streak and the aurora will soften. Short exposures may have sharper detail but dimmer images.
  • Every aurora and camera is distinctive, so experiment with different settings and exposure times to get the best shot.

Best Viewing Conditions

The aurora can be visible anytime we have adequate darkness; from late August through mid-April.  The main obstacles to finding auroras are cloud cover and light pollution. We will drive up to 3 hours outside Fairbanks to find clear, dark skies.  A full moon reflecting on the snowy winter landscapes can make it more difficult to see the aurora with the naked eye, but it can also give you the most breathtaking views of Alaska lit by moonlight and provide an incredible background for a nighttime tour and some amazing photography opportunities.

Although you shouldn’t be discouraged from joining an aurora tour around the full moon, if finding aurora is your main goal when traveling to Alaska and your dates are flexible, consider coming at a time of the new moon.

Lights in the sky - Fairbanks Northern Lights Tour

  • Bev As a solo traveler I usually veer towards group tours and make my decisions based on ratings. Greatland Adventures definitely lived up to their high ratings and awesome reviews. I have booked several tours with them. From the beginning it was a pleasurable experience with Steve and Rochelle who have excellent communication with their clients and ensure you are fully accommodated for your tour. I did the northern lights tour with Mike who is an excellent guide! Very knowledgeable and he captured some excellent photos of me! I completed the glacier tour with Bill who is also very knowledgeable and ensured we had a great experience at the glacier by getting us there before others arrived and allowing us to safe explore all the accessible crevasses. I absolutely recommend this tour company they are amazing!
  • Jane I want to sincerely applaud the members of Greatland Adventures! They made me and my friend's trip to Anchorage one of the most amazing experiences ever in our lives... We were all well educated about the lights before we got there and even had a chance to have a pitstop at a gas station to use the toilet and grab a coffee. We even saw the lights that night TWICE! Thank you, Steve! The memories we made will last a lifetime and we are so happy we chose Greatland Adventures. I am telling any and everyone that plans to visit Anchorage to book through them. No question!

✅ TIPS for Tours from Fairbanks to the Arctic Circle

Preparing for your trip and bringing along some essentials might make or break how positive your experience is!

💡 Mentally prepare for and expect a VERY LONG DAY . There is no way around it, the trip to the arctic circle is a long one!

💫 The Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) is a natural phenomenon and can not be guaranteed ! There is NO refund for tours if the Northern Lights can not be seen.

Below are some recommended items for your travels – of course some items depend on the time of year you travel.

✔️ Bug spray for those pesky Alaskan mosquitoes

✔️ Binoculars

✔️ Water and snacks , perhaps a bagged lunch (check tour details)

✔️ Toilet paper and sanitizing hand wipes

✔️ Extra portable battery charger for your camera or phone

✔️ Summer : bring mosquito repellent and warm clothes

✔️ Winter : bring LOTS of warm clothes

🚫 WEATHER Cancellations 🛩

The weather and conditions in Alaska, especially in the winter, can be fierce. Roads become hazardous, temperatures can reach -50 or colder, wildfires occur (in summer), and things can become downright life-threatening for travelers whether it is by road or air.

It’s important for those who book trips involving flying, especially, to know that small planes can and will cancel flights due to various circumstances sometimes , leaving you no choice but to spend another few hours or even a day or two extra in Coldfoot.

Consider this part of the experience and while no one, even the pilot, likes it when these delays occur, their hands are tied and everyone has to wait things out.

❇️ FAQS: The Arctic Circle and Fairbanks Alaska

Let’s be honest, this type of trip is a big deal so you may have some questions about the area you are looking at visiting!

Not everyone gets to visit the Arctic Circle in their lifetime but if you do get the chance, it’s nice to be able to answer questions that come up in conversation.

What is the Arctic Circle?

The Arctic Circle is an important circle of latitude located in the Northern Hemisphere. It marks the boundary between the Arctic and the Northern temperate zone, cutting through places like Alaska. It plays an important role because it marks our night vs. day cycle! Its exact position shifts because of Earth’s tilt and the tidal forces from our moon.

Where is the Arctic Circle in Alaska?

Starting 80 miles NW of Fairbanks and ending at the Arctic Ocean, the Arctic Circle is located at the latitude of 66° 33′ north. It marks the southernmost point where the sun remains visible above the horizon for 24 hours during summer solstice, and, it is also the northernmost point where there are 24-hour periods of darkness during winter solstice.

The Arctic Circle Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) encompasses 19 million acres of land that lie directly inside this circle. In addition , Gates of the Arctic National Park covers 3,238 square miles and sits entirely inside the Arctic Circle.

How far is Fairbanks from the Arctic Circle?

Fairbanks is located approximately 198 road miles south of the Arctic Circle, accessible via the renowned Dalton Highway . If you were to measure it in straight-line distance, it’s about 149 air miles between Fairbanks and the Arctic Circle. This journey through Alaska’s rugged terrain is an adventure in itself!

Is the road paved from Fairbanks to Arctic Circle?

The road from Fairbanks to the Arctic Circle on the Dalton Highway is indeed a challenging one. While some small sections are paved, the majority of the road is gravel. The surface can vary from hard, bone-jarring rocky terrains to smoother dirt roads. It’s a road that demands attention and preparation, so it’s not for the faint of heart!

How long is the drive from Fairbanks to the Arctic Circle?

The drive from Fairbanks to the Arctic Circle is a very long one, taking about 6-7 hours just to reach the Arctic Circle sign. Given the challenging road conditions on the Dalton Highway, it’s no quick jaunt. If you opt for an Arctic Circle Day Tour from Fairbanks, it will take the whole day and then some.

This is the Yukon River, breathtaking in size and a very memorable place to visit.

11 Best Arctic Circle Tours from Fairbanks Alaska in 2024

More From Forbes

2024 is a great year to see the northern lights, expedia survey finds.

  • Share to Facebook
  • Share to Twitter
  • Share to Linkedin

An aurora borealis, also known as Northern Lights, illuminates the night sky above the Yllas Fell in ... [+] Kolari, Finnish Lapland, early on January 15, 2022.

2024 is projected as an awesome year to witness the Northern Lights. In helping to spread the word about this news, Expedia has released both a survey and a guide on what travelers need to know and where to go to see this multi-colored light phenomenon.

Unveiled in a media announcement, Expedia’s new survey cited that, in the year ahead, nearly half of Americans (42 percent) will make aura chasing a priority over other iconic bucket list experiences. Seeing the Northern Lights ranked higher than visiting the Egyptian pyramids (36 percent) and walking along the Great Wall of China (33 percent).

According to Christie Hudson, head of public relations for Expedia’s US division, the travel technology company became aware of this travel forecast late last year.

Hudson noted that meteorologists and space experts began reporting on the Aurora Borealis’ visibility becoming greater. This finding is happening due to a favorable solar cycle taking place, which is driven by the sun’s magnetic field and resulting in a side effect that causes auroras such as the Northern Lights to visualize.

“When we learned that, we realized there was just such an opportunity to help people plan this type of trip, because a Northern Lights viewing trip is kind of a bucket list trip for a lot of people,” said Hudson.

Bitcoin vs the dollar biden administration suddenly declares u s crypto emergency after huge price surge, wwe smackdown results: winners and grades as the rock returns, where to see the northern lights in 2024.

The Expedia survey also lists places where travelers can witness this phenomenon, some of which Expedia asked participants what they thought they were. Hudson said that the most commonly chosen answer from respondents was Finland but she also mentioned that there are other viewing places “a lot closer to home.”

According to Hudson, Canada has two great destinations for seeing the Northern Lights, one being Yellowknife, a city within the Northwest Territories and the other is Churchill, a town in Manitoba that is also known for polar bear sightings.

Other locations mentioned in the survey include Banff and Jasper, Canada; Narvik, Alta and Tromsø, Norway; Isle of Skye, Scotland; and Abisko and Kiruna, Sweden.

The United States is also included in the survey, listing Alaska, Michigan and Minnesota. In the “North Star State,” Hudson noted that heading to Voyageurs National Park during the winter months can provide a chance at getting a really good view.

Alaska is also among the destinations known for seeing the Northern Lights. A new survey from ... [+] Expedia lists Fairbanks as one of many locations to head to in 2024.

What To Know About Seeing The Northern Lights

However, Hudson added that it’s best to known that catching glimpses of this natural wonder is not always certain. Having coinciding activities on your itinerary is important. For example, if you’re in Norway to see the Northern Lights, look to book a reindeer encounter such as sledding.

“Even if everything is optimal, weather is unpredictable. It’s part of what makes [the Northern Lights] so magical is that there’s no guarantee that you’re going to see them,” said Hudson. “Make sure you have other things you want to see and do in that area when you go.”

Along with the survey, Expedia has published an online guide on seeing the Northern Lights. The free digital magazine breaks down just about every aspect of planning an upcoming trip, along with specific guides to cities featured in the Expedia survey. The magazine also covers topics such as how to best take pictures of the Northern Lights with tips from a professional photographer.

As for other trip advice, Hudson recommended booking with a local tour operator. She added that their guides can provide in-depth knowledge not only on seeing the Northern Lights within their destination but also about the location you’re viewing them in.

Expedia’s online magazine on the Northern Lights can be seen here . The press announcement on the company’s related survey can be read here .
