Our tour guide, David, was impressively knowledgeable about the wildlife, geography, and history of the land and overall was a really nice guy. We stopped at a really cool Yukon roadside station to get food and interact with some of the locals who were interesting and gave me a ride on their snowmobile! before continuing up to the Circle. We stopped to take pictures of the sunset and got an official Arctic Circle certificate afterward, and yes, we saw the Aurora! It wasn't as bright as we were hoping because the moon was nearly full, so I highly recommend doing this trip when it's a new moon or close to it. Check before you book, and check the weather too as clouds will obstruct the view. The silver lining was that we saw not only the green lights but the rarer pink and red ones too. So maybe it was a red lining? Also! Keep in mind, humans can only detect so much with the naked eye and the Aurora will look similar to how we see the Milky Way: Yellow-gray, somewhat pale. The photographs of bursting skies are only visible with long camera exposures the same way all those extra stars in astrophotography are only visible with cameras. This doesn't dampen the experience at all especially because you CAN see colors with the eye alone, but it's a good heads up for those expecting a saturated tie-dye sky.
I'd totally do this again. There's no such thing as seeing the Northern Lights too many times, especially over such a breathtaking landscape.
Renee is a super nice a knowledgeable guy!!! And we did see lot of aurora that night!!
What a great tour. Our tour guide was amazing and full of great knowledge and anecdotes.
We were entertained for the whole drive - which seemed like it could get boring - and got very lucky with some great views of the Northern Lights.
Would highly recommend.
Great trip to the Arctic circle. Would do it again!
We saw the lights only briefly. We enjoyed our ride.
Thanks to Rene for the experience
Our drive is a really nice guy. He explained everything on the road and finding a good spot for us to see the Aurora. It was windy everywhere but I still saw beautify northern lights. It's a nice and unforgettable trip.
It was great, but the Northern Light was a let down just four minute. I love the driver up to Arctic Circle. Happy to paid someone to drive me and I felt safe.
It was a great drive up to the Arctic Circle and our guide was really friendly and knowledgeable. Unfortunately we didn't see the Northern Lights on our trip but it was still a good experience driving along the Dalton Highway.
My interest in this trip was primarily to see the Northern Lights before I'm too old to get there. I booked this tour through Viator and the owner was very helpful in answering my questions as I prepared for the trip. As an old guy, I was concerned about potty breaks along the way. Let me put all at ease, there are facilities park latrines at stops along the way so that I had no problem. Our guide was Mike and he did a wonderful job. Mike shared his experience and knowledge of Alaska in a way that was personal and enlightening. Mike was very conscientious with the driving especially after dark while we were all straining to see if the aurora would show up. When it appeared, Mike found a safe place to pull over and we took all the time we needed to enjoy and photograph this amazing natural phenomenon. I'm glad to say that my wish has been fulfilled. I recommend this tour and I have high praise for the manner in which our tour was conducted. I hope all who take this tour have the good fortune that we did in viewing the Northern Lights.
Our tour guide Nikolai was very nice and give us a lot of information during the trip.
He was very careful on the road!
Nicholi was great, stopping whenever possible to see the Aurora !
