Gondwana Ecotours

Gondwana Ecotours is offering a 7-day “Alaska Northern Lights Ecotour.”  Guests will get a dose of local culture by day and photograph the Aurora Borealis under the massive Alaskan sky by night. Highlights of the tour include dog sledding through snowy forests, hiking alongside a family of reindeer, taking curling lessons from locals in Fairbanks, soaking in the geothermal Chena Hot Springs, learning to photograph the Aurora Borealis from a professional photographer, snowshoeing on private land, and exploring the Ice Sculpture Museum. Gondwana Ecotours is offering an array of Alaska Northern Lights departures from September 2019 – March 2020. The tour starts at $2,795 per person double.

Guests will view the Northern Lights displays from a family-owned lodge with magnificent panoramic views. During the day there will be time to explore Fairbanks, take an exciting sled dog ride, or rejuvenate in the natural hot springs at Chena. Fairbanks is situated within a ring-shaped region around the North Pole called the auroral oval. This location affords a terrific balance of occurrence, frequency and activity of Northern Lights.

Each Alaska Northern Lights tour is limited to 12 guests and includes cozy accommodations and personal wake-up calls when Aurora is active.
