Northern Lights Overnight Packages

Northern Lights Overnight Packages

Want the best chances of seeing the northern lights? The more time you spend, the better chances you'll have of seeing Alaska's amazing aurora borealis. Increase the odds by booking a multi-day overnight northern lights viewing package during northern lights viewing season, late August through April. On these overnight excursions, you’ll be whisked away to prime northern lights viewing areas away from ambient city light. Getting there is also part of the fun – some tours travel by snowmachine or dog sled, while others take you to remote communities by land or air.

Lodging ranges from rustic camps to remote lodges to accommodations with glass dome ceilings that are specifically built to maximize your northern lights viewing experience. These packages range in duration from one night to several nights and include meals and experienced guides that will monitor the aurora activity and take you to the best northern lights viewing locations in Alaska.
