VIP Aurora Viewing Tour

From USD $135.00
  • Duration: 5 Hours (approx.)
  • Location: Fairbanks, Alaska
  • Product code: VIPABL6HR

Tour Contents

Away from the lights and noise of the city, our small lodges and cabins
sit on the mountain ridges surrounding Fairbanks. From the warmth of a cozy
sofa watch the magical Aurora while drinking a cup of cocoa or some hot tea or
coffee. Our clear ceilinged domes are the first in North America and are perfect Aurora viewing. And if
it’s a 365* view you want, go outside and get those magical photos you’ve been
longing for from your personal deck. If you listen carefully, you might hear the Aurora singing to you.

 

Inclusions

Round trip transportation, entrance to the aurora dome, small snacks and warm
drinks. (To guarantee a Chinese speaking guide, the group booking the
tour must be at least 6 people.)

 

Exclusions  

Meals, tips for driver and guide ($8 and above is the suggested tip per
guest per activity.)

 

Schedule

Your Aurora journey begins when our hotel pick-ups
start at 9:00 p.m. We will pick you up in a comfortable bus or high-topped van.
The van will leave Fairbanks at 10:00 p.m. The drive to the lodges lasts about
40 minutes depending on the road conditions. Upon arrival at the lodge, you
will enjoy 3 hours of free time to watch for the Aurora, take pictures and
enjoy a cozy Alaskan home setting. 
Depending on the Aurora’s condition, we will leave for Fairbanks between
2-3 a.m.

 

*Please note that pick-ups are at various
hotels. Your exact pick-up time will be determined by our office and you will
be notified 1-2 days before your tour. Make sure to leave contact information.

 


** The Aurora Borealis are a natural phenomenon. There
is no way for us to guarantee that you will see the Aurora. We do our best to
provide premier locations for viewing, should the Aurora come out. Please check
weather and Aurora reports before booking your tour with us. If the Aurora do
not appear, your money will not be refunded.
