Northern Lights

Northern Lights

Head to Fairbanks to see the Aurora Borealis, nature’s spectacular light display. The far north of Alaska has minimal light pollution and is ideal for spotting the Northern Lights, which flicker from green to blue and red in the night sky. Although it’s possible to spot the lights all year round, spend a few days in the north for the best chance of cloudless, moonless skies from late August to April.
