Northern Lights Show

Despite a less than favorable forecast, we got to see a good Northern Lights show! Our tour guide, Erika, did a great job in getting us to/from Murphy's Dome and in position to see the lights. Only drawback was the extremely annoying people in the tour van who kept going in and out of the van, leaving the door open...this meant cold air kept rushing the van and the dome light stayed on most of the time. Overall, worth the trip

Our driver was right on time for our pickup. He had a great deal of knowledge about the Northern Lights. The weather did not look good because of cloud cover. Our guide stayed very patient but at about 2:30 AM we agreed to give up, BUT our drive persisted and found us a place where the lights were visible! Thanks to him, we all finished the excursion with a smile on our face and a great bucket list experience!!!

Technically, I didn't go on this tour as I was upgraded to the yurt tour by this company. The company was very responsive and timely with notification. I highly recommend this company.

This was an excellent tour we were able to see the Northern lights and take some great pictures. The young lady who was our guide ,Cassie from Australia ,made this possible .She was very knowledgeable not only about the Aurora's but about Fairbanks in general, Additionally she showed us how to use our own camera so as to get great pictures of the Aurora's which we would not have been able to do without her.On a scale of 1-10 I'd give them a Big 10.
