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 !
Great tour!!! I was originally going to take the fly in tour but I'm glad I didn't. Great views and the Aurora even played ball for us. I highly recommend it!
Nikolai was an excellent guide. He was professional, knowledgeable, and placed safety first. He educated our small group about so many aspects of Alaskan life that I had not known or expected.
It was an incredible experience. Visiting the Arctic circle was amazing (and very very cold!).
Unfortunately Mother Nature didn't play ball and we didn't see the northern lights but it was still a really good experience.
Our guide was very informative and answered all my questions!
It was a great trip. We really enjoyed it. The only fault was it was so long! The drive really knew all about the area from Fairbanks to the Arctic Circle.
Rainer and Ted from Alaska Wildlife did an excellent explaining the background history and essential information relating to the aurora and life in Alaska. They were friendly and engaged us in conversation throughout the 14 hour trip. As the night had heavy snow fall and the sky was overcast, they tried their best to be on the look out for aurora which we were hoping to see. We finally had a sighting by the Yukon river.
The trip was disappointing due to a number of factors. The driver was new and didn't talk most of the trip. He gave some history of the area but most of the discussion was him answering questions posed to him. The trip was long and there wasn't much to see. We saw two snow rabbits and a white rodent. The certificate for arriving at the arctic circle was given to us by the driver. The area was cloudy so we did not see any Northern Lights. We were disappointed.
Again, worse trip ever. Ten people in nine passenger van, driver sick and coughing the whole time, flat tire, totally misrepresentation and I have written this before with no results. Quit asking.
