Welcome to the Aurora Borealis Lodge. We are located just 20 miles north of Fairbanks in the famed Cleary Summit area, known locally and internationally as one of the best places to view the northern lights in the world!

We offer accommodations, as well as evening aurora tours for those who are staying in a Fairbanks area hotel.

Come join us for a chance to view the beautiful lights in the sky.

The Aurora Borealis Lodge offers evening aurora tours for guests staying in Fairbanks area hotels. Two types of tours are available.

Our tour season runs August 20 – early April. Please note that there are black out dates as well as sold out dates, so reservations are required.

April 6, 2017 was our last day of the season for aurora tours.  Thank you to all for coming up.  

We will re-open on August 20, 2017 for aurora tours.  However, we are currently sold out of all tour space (both premier & self-drive tours) due to charter flight tour groups from August 25 to September 10.  We will update status of this in early August.  

Please be sure to e-mail or call us to check on other dates as we may have non-listed closures as well.
