Northern Light Husky Trip Picture


The best time to view the northern lights in Alaska is between August and April, when the night sky is dark enough to reveal them. Due to the abundance of high pressure systems and lengthy, chilly clear nights, a visit during winter (November -March) offers you the greatest chance of seeing the northern lights.

Arctic Dog Adventure Co offers unforgettable aurora viewing experiences. 

During these northern lights husky trips, we'll take you to the epicenter of aurora borealis activity, where you'll work together with an expert husky musher to learn how to drive your own dog team as you journey across breathtaking scenery to take you to locations handpicked for world class aurora borealis viewing.

Visitors to Fairbanks who spend 3 or more nights looking for the aurora have a 90% chance to see one of nature's most magnificent sights, and Arctic Dog Adventure Co. can take you to the perfect, private viewing location.


 With expert guides, well-trained dogs, and all the necessary equipment, we’ll make sure you have everything you need for an unforgettable trip.

The following is a list of our top Northern Lights Husky Trips. These trips will provide you with an excellent opportunity to observe the aurora borealis.


5-7 Days | Multiple Cabins


In our opinion, our Hut to Hut White Mountains Dog Sledding Adventures are the best way to view the northern lights in Fairbanks! One of the best places on earth to view the northern lights, this incredible landscape has over two hundred miles of trail ideal for travel by dog team. 

The wide open landscape of the White Mountains provides the perfect Northern backdrop for spotting the aurora borealis. Our 5 and 7 day excursions in the Alaskan wilderness will maximize your time away from light pollution so you have the highest chance of seeing the northern lights at their fullest. 

You'll mush your own team of huskies each day as you traverse different parts of the White Mountains, making stops at charming huts along the way to rest and refuel. This truly is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you won't want to miss. 


4 Days | Basecamp at a Hot Springs Cabin

There is hardly anything more enjoyable than viewing the northern stars and shimmering aurora from a steaming hot tub, deep in the remote Alaskan wilderness! 

Our Tolovana Hot Springs Trip offers scenic winter wilderness travel accentuated by a relaxing stint at backcountry hot springs. This is a trip that truly shows off the expansive beauty and hidden treasures of Interior Alaska. 


After a day of orientation and gear check at Arctic Dog Adventure Co, we will take one day to travel to the hot springs; three days to explore the hot springs and the surrounding area; then one day to mush back out to the trailhead. 


This trip will include orientation night at our homestead and fours nights in private cabin accommodations, fully immersed in the rustic luxury that is Tolovana Hot Springs.
