NORTHERN LIGHTS TRIPS
The best time to view the northern lights in Alaska is between November and April, when cold arctic high-pressure systems blanket the entire state. Due to the abundance of lengthy, chilly clear nights, a visit during winter 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 handpicked to take you to world class aurora borealis viewing locations.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see one of nature's most magnificent sights, and Arctic Dog Adventure Co. can take you to the perfect 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.
Join us on this all-inclusive two day dog sledding & aurora viewing adventure!
After orientation & a brief mushing lesson, drive a dog team to a cozy cabin in the White Mountains National Recreation Area.
Located just north of Fairbanks, Alaska, the White Mountains National Recreation Area has over one million acres of wilderness marked by rolling black spruce forest, rocky limestone cliffs, open river valleys, and mountain ridges adorned with mystical black granite tors.
We have handpicked this location for its unobscured northern horizons, providing a dream backdrop for aurora viewing.
The next day, enjoy a full dog sledding day tour on winding trails through the snow laden black spruce and birch forests of Interior Alaska.
ARCTIC CIRCLE EXPEDITION
Long spring days invite intrepid dog sledders to explore the stunning treeless landscapes of the Itikmalik River of the Brooks Range, far above the Arctic Circle.
Explore the tundra and creek valleys surrounding our Arctic camp, situated just outside Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve. Play in the shadows of the rugged Brooks Range mountains and search for dropped caribou antlers on our daily forays into and around the Park. If we are lucky, the sun will shine bright late into the evening, inviting long lunches with warm afternoon naps on the sleds, and fresh outdoor dinners with sunglasses still needed.
After sundown, watch the aurora swirl through the late evening twilight, dancing overhead in the giant Arctic sky.
This is the most rustic and adventurous of our trips, with tent camping, an outdoor latrine, and millions of acres of tundra to explore by dog team.
