Aurora Lodge Viewing

The guide was very nice and knowledgeable; however, the tour itself was too long and frankly quite boring. The advertisement would give one the impression that this tour is quite popular. But we ended up with 3 people going on the Murphy Dome tour instead. The aurora were at best OK (not the company's fault of course), but all the extra driving around got old quickly.

The lightshow

Our guide was awesome and punctual in picking us up. She was careful in making sure we were safe when stepping on and off the van. Viewing it from the lodge was a great idea given it was 0 and a few degrees below through the night. We got to meet others who were also waiting for the northern lights. There were hot drinks and snacks available. The chairs that we sat on to wait were so comfortable. Most of us fell asleep at some points waiting. Guides were helpful on camera settings too!

It was amazing! We got to see the Aurora on our first night in Fairbanks. Jake is a very awesome tour guide. He is very friendly. The lodge is very nice and warm. They have bathrooms too. Also They provided some hot tea, coffee, cocoa and cookies.

The lodge was comfortable and set up perfectly for Aurora viewing. Host Mok was so welcoming and accommodating of all his guests. Tour guide Lexi was fabulous. Even made a 10yr. Old and 13yr. Old feel like a valued member of the group.

Best experience! This was on my bucket list & after 4 snowy/cloudy nights we finally hit a clear one. It was a weak Aurora but we could still see it so that’s all that matters. The lodge is really nice & comfortable. They provided water, coffee, wine & homemade cookies. Dave our guide was really nice. Overall great time!

The tour itself and the guide were great, but weather did not cooperate so we weren't able to see the lights.

This was such an incredibly comfortable and cozy lodge to wait for/view the Northern Lights. The host, Mok, is very friendly, willing to share information that was very helpful to our stay in Fairbanks. We loved this place!!

We couldn't agree more -- all the creature comforts plus the Aurora. What could be better!
