NORTHERN LIGHTS VIEWING VACATION EXPERIENCES

The most reliable chances to see the northern lights (also known as the Aurora Borealis) are from Fairbanks, and above the Arctic Circle. The aurora belt in Alaska's great Interior and Arctic regions is among the most active in the world, and there few other places on earth so suited for an Aurora Borealis vacation. While there is no guarantee, Northern Lights trips are typically best made in late fall and winter/early spring, though they can be seen throughout the winter months on nights with clear skies. If you come in November, December or January you experience short day light hours which provides a unique experience in the high northern hemisphere.  In February and March there are longer daylight hours for you to enjoy more of the snow covered landscapes with evenings that still offer maximum northern lights viewing chances.
