Fairbanks is simply one of the best places one earth to see the aurora borealis. The city’s location under the “Auroral Oval” – a ring-shaped region around the North Pole – offers a great balance of clear nights, occurrence frequency and activity that draws people from all over the world. During the aurora season, August 21 through April 21, aurora will be visible four out of five nights when the sky is clear and dark enough. Drive to a nearby vantage point and wait for the northern lights to appear. Arrange to view them from a heated “aurorium” cabin or lodge, on an overnight dog sled adventure, by snow cat tour or on a flight above the Arctic Circle. No guarantees, but the longer you stay, the better your chances of seeing the enthralling northern lights.
