Northern Light Husky Trip Picture

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 as you journey across breathtaking scenery highlighted by the aurora borealis.

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.

HUT TO HUT
DOG SLEDDING ADVENTURES

Imagine an otherworldly experience, dog sledding under the stars with the northern lights flickering above you. In our opinion, our Hut to Hut White Mountains Dog Sledding Adventures are the best way to view the northern lights in Fairbanks! 

The wide open landscape of the White Mountains provides the perfect Northern backdrop for spotting the aurora borealis. Our 6 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.

CABIN OVERNIGHT

The perfect Alaskan dog sledding experience -- drive your own dog team over the frozen summits and snow-laden black spruce forests of the White Mountains National Recreation Area to a cozy log cabin complete with a view.

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. An ideal place to view the northern lights, this incredible landscape is patterned with the scars of old wildfire burns and has over two hundred miles of trails serving twelve remote cabins.

WOMEN'S ARCTIC MUSHING ADVENTURE

April is the best time to visit the Arctic.
