Healy: Denali Aurora Quest

2. Healy: Denali Aurora Quest

Search the skies for the Northern Lights on a 3-hour guided tour in the Denali area. The Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) are one of the world's most spectacular natural phenomenons, and Alaska is one of the best places in the world for viewing. Get picked up from your Healy area accommodation in a 15-passenger, climate-controlled van. Journey away from the lights of town in search for the Northern Lights. The area around Denali makes an ideal spot for stargazing and catching the sometimes elusive Aurora Borealis. Your Alaskan guide will provide commentary and conversation on the area's unique history, formidable climate, dynamic geography, separate scientific facts and fictional myth as you travel to various spots to get the best view.  At each predetermined viewing area, take an opportunity to step outside and stretch your legs, sip a warm complimentary drink, and learn how the Lights are the result of collisions between gaseous particles in the Earth's atmosphere. This bucket list experience will provide multiple photo opportunities with your local guide providing pointers to really capture the moment. The Northern Lights are visible only during the winter months (September to April) and sightings are not guaranteed.

What people are saying about Fairbanks

We enjoyed the tour. Our guide was very friendly and positive, took us to his favorite spot where the view of Aurora Borealis was really spectacular. He even took pictures for us as not all cameras are friendly to take night shots. We highly recommend Healy Denali Aurora Quest tour to all.

Jordan was a great guide. We had a KP index of 1 and we still able to see the Northern Lights. Jordan moved to different areas to make sure we were able to see them. Thank you Jordan!
