jrbonnst Highly Recommend

We booked this trip about two months in advance. The company called a couple days ahead to check on pickup date and times- much appreciated! Jessica arrived at our hotel for pickup right on time. She was friendly and knowledgeable, and an excellent experienced driver on snowy/icy roads. She was kind and helpful at all times, and always put the wellbeing of her passengers first. Things to know - this is a 14 hour tour, so very late at night when you return. You need to be able to dress for very cold weather and climb in/out of a van on slick surfaces. Jessica provided a boxed lunch, and we also stopped at the Yukon River Camp for supper. She was an expert at assisting with various kinds of cameras and phones for excellent pictures. I highly recommend this tour and suggest requesting Jessica as your guide!

Amazing Trip! Arlene D

So glad I did this tour. I would not be able to drive in snow and in most areas, without network connection. I would be so lost! Our guide was very skilled and knowledgeable. Despite the cold, she would pull over and clear the lights from ice/snow to ensure we are all safe. We were rewarded with Aurora's presence :) Just as we were about to leave the Arctic Circle, our guide paused and saw a small streak of "green"... true enough, the northern lights appeared! We were all delighted and stayed longer to enjoy this amazing experience. After we left, we again pulled over at another stop for yet another chance to view Aurora Borealis from a different location. I would take this tour again if I find myself in Fairbanks again.

Amazing, beautiful, northern lights trip Noah W

Our tour on Thursday January 18th was perfect!! I think our tour guide’s name was Gavin, he was a great driver and taught us all about the sights on the way to the circle!!! We saw the lights at the perfect moment in the arctic circle, and our tour guide video taped my proposal for me, going above and beyond what was asked. The lights were great, the drive was beautiful and the tour was perfect!!!
